Are you planning a trip to Piacenza this summer?

Several of our membership travel to Piacenza during the summer and it would be nice for them to know who else will be there during that time.  If you would like to share, please contact us at societa.val.trebbia.e.val.nure@gmail.com.  I will create a private distribution list of those who are sharing so you can communicate among yourselves.  As of now I believe the The Piacentini Nel Mondo ceremony will held on August 11th in Groppovisdomo di Gropparello for those interested. – Dave
