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.
