Dr. Claudia Capurro

My study of the Italian language and culture at UCD not only helped me better learn my native tongue (English) but was also was a huge benefit for my travels to Italy which included spending a year studying there in my journey to my present career as a physician.

Although my studies at UCD were over 30 years ago, I have extremely fond memories of my studies of Italian and especially of my teacher, Gustavo Foscarini.  I am inspired that he still remembers me after all these years, and I believe this says a lot about the department.
