Italian day at Magna

The residents from Magna Care Centre in Wimbourne were gathered together in the lounge to help enjoy an Italian themed day where we shared Italian facts, music, food and a quiz.

The residents communal lounge area was decorated with Italian bunting and a large flag. The purpose of this event was in aid of welcoming our Italian resident Tony (featured in the photo with Limoncello) Tony has come all the way from Italy to reside with us for a short while.

Residents were invited to taste various different Italian foods which included Mortadella, Parma ham, salami, vine tomatoes, mozzarella, olives, sun dried tomatoes, and bread sticks accompanied with hot Rosemary bread. To help wash down the food they enjoyed a glass or two of Limoncello …
