Alla Basilica di San Lorenzo

Abbiamo fatto un’esperienze illuminante. Il progetto consisteva in uno
lavoro di squadra con tre personne e tre menti.  Abbiamo visto la
basilica di San Lorenzo in un modo nuovo come gli artisti del
Renaiscimento e abbiamo imparato la storia della chiesa della famiglia
piu famosa nella storia di Firenze: i Medici.  Ci e piacuto il progetto
perche San Lorenzo era bella e interresante. E stato utile per
practicare l’italiano.
