Studying abroad in Castiglion Fiorentino, Italy, my junior year at Texas A&M University was easily one of the best experiences of my life, thanks in no small part to Paolo Barucchieri, longtime director of the Texas A&M study abroad program in Italy who died April 9 after battling cancer. I will always remember my days at Santa Chiara and all the trips Paolo guided us on throughout the country, including a ski trip to the Swiss-Italian Alps. I have no doubt he impacted the life of every student who passed through his doors. He will be greatly missed and always remembered. Rest in peace, Paolo, and thank you for the great memories.
