I can't believe that we just finished up the last day of the trip! We started the morning off with a refreshing walk in the city on our way to our first visit, and my favorite company of the day, Sergio Tacchini. Sergio Tacchini is a high quality tennis clothing company. Sergio Tacchini was the first designer to introduce color into the tennis world. It was very interesting to see their headquarters and where and how they design the clothing. I never realized how much thought and testing went into the outfits. It was also interesting to see the design differences for different countries. For example, the French line was very bold with large logos while the Italian line was more subtle with less color and small logos. Overall, the goal of Sergio Tacchini is to create elegant, classy clothing that are still functional. We had a great time the rest of the day walking around the city, attending our second visit, and having our last Italian dinner. Now it is time for bed because we have to wake up early to fly out early in the morning. I am so thankful for all of the great opportunities and experiences that we have had in the past 9 days!
