Italian Adventures in Russia

Alessandra Marabini and Francesca Di Furia are Italian exchange students living in Nizhny Novgorod. They are from University of Bergamo and have come to HSE on an exchange semester to study Economics and Russian Language. Both of them have been to Russia before so they are not fazed by the unfamiliar things they see going on around them. Nevertheless, as they tell us below, something new and surprising seems to happen to them everyday. The things that struck them most during their month in Nizhny Novgorod are public transport and the old houses.

Do they really eat frogs’ legs? Do they wear striped vests and berets with a baguette under their arms? Do they dine for two hours, eating moldy cheese? Are they snobs or romantics? Are they lazy or just really enjoy life? Students from France answered all these questions and more during the meeting of the International Club in Nizhny Novgorod.
