Phoenix Pride in Florence, Italy

Earlier this month, a UW-Green Bay pennant was hung in an unexpected location – Florence, Italy.

Abigail Veeser, a current UWGB senior, is studying abroad for a month this summer through a Santa Reparata International School of Art (SRISA) program. While in Green Bay, Abigail studies education with a minor in history.

The pennant was hung at a family-owned restaurant, Pino’s Sandwiches, a popular spot among study-abroad students in Florence. Pino himself still works at the shop, opened in 1991, and has served everyone from famous actors and Olympic athletes to locals.

On June 10, 2024, Pino added another to his collection of pennants gifted from college students. Abigail and Pino hung the UWGB pennant alongside dozens of others. Thank you to Pino’s Sandwiches and Abigail Veeser for sharing your Phoenix Pride all the way in Italy!
