A Venezuelan of Italian Descent Living in Spain

August 30, 2022

This episode kicks off Season 4 of the podcast and brings you the cultural reflections and stories of Carlos Palmitesta, a dear friend who grew up in Caracas, Venezuela in an Italian family, studied and worked in the US and England, and has now settled down in Madrid, Spain. Carlos and I talk about a Venezuela of the past that both he and I know and feel very nostalgic about. We discuss Venezuela’s cultural standing within Latin America. We talk about some of the many cultural treasures Venezuela has to offer. And we reminisce about time spent in the company of a tight group of Latin Americans while we studied at the University of Kansas.
