UMD student Nick Beck's love affair with Italy and the Italian language began with a dream - a literal dream - about being forced into a Fiat, while everyone around him was speaking French but it was really Italian (you know how dreams go).

The irrepressable Nick Beck tells his story of refusing to speak English, heartbreak, Italian pop star Tiziano Ferro, and weeping into his coffee cup.

You can see the official video for “Ti Scatterò Una Foto” by Tiziano Ferro here.


Hello Mudda, hello Faddah
Here I am at Camp Grenada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining

I went hiking with Joe Spivey
He developed poison ivy.
You remember Leonard Skinner
He got Ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner

Wait a minute, it's stopped hailing Guys are swimming, guys are sailing
Playing baseball, gee that's bettah
Muddah, Faddah kindly disregard this letter
