My wife Anne and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary, September 25, 2006, in Rome. What a marvelous city!. The people were great, the history and buildings awe inspiring and the food superb. This is a bag made by NANNINI an Italian bag maker that my wife got while we were there. It brings back many fond memories for each of us. The green background is a tribute to Italy and represent the green in the Italian flag. My wife is from Ireland and we arrived in Rome from Cork, so the green is also representative of her heritage.
