    It was a very good experience for me to study in Florence City. My training course had completed last Friday(19th May). It was very nice to have a professional training in Dimitri’s work-shop for myself. I am really thankful to have such a chance to work with him, not only by his enthusiastic in his field and teaching; also, by the inspiration from himself and the work-shop. Once again, I am very appreaciated by his consideration to the students. Thanks,Jack
