Compass on the Bay Celebrates Italy with Food and Fun

SOUTH BOSTON, MA – Compass on the Bay residents had a first class ticket for a trip to Italy as they explored the nation’s food and culture from the comfort of home. 

The European getaway was part of the community’s Grab Your Passport program, which is an immersive program that allows residents to spend one or more days each month virtually traveling to another country to explore the history, art, music, sightseeing venues, and cuisine of that destination. 

For Italy, residents enjoyed making (and eating!) cannolis with an assortment of toppings including chocolate sprinkles, coconut flakes, and raspberry.
