Pietro comes to Lead Hill from warm Milan, Italy. He does notice the cold air and especially the windy conditions on his arrival in the USA. But since he is staying until May, chances are he will find some warmer conditions during his semester at Lead Hill. Pietro lives with the Halbmaiers...Kevin and Diana and his host brother Jermu. In Italy, he calls Ilaria and Fulvio mom and dad.
His goal in coming to Lead Hill is to improve his English. If he also gets a better understanding of the American way..that is cool too. Lead Hill is different from his Italian school. Lead Hill is bigger and in Italy, the teachers change classrooms while the students stay in one room all day.
