Laureare. To graduate university.

Laurearsi?  Not sure.  It’s something along these lines.

See the young woman with flowers in red paper in her arm?

She just graduated from university.  How do I know?

Because she wears a “corona” or a circle of bay leaves on her head.

What a beautiful custom!  I look forward to seeing more graduates around Florence over the coming months.  I hope to have my camera ready sooner so I can get a front view!
