Happy Chocolate Eggs!
And happy Colomba (one of the traditional Easter sweets), happy Pasquetta (the day after Easter, traditionally dedicated to day-trips)... as we say in Italy: "Natale con i tuoi, Pasqua con chi vuoi"... in English more or less goes like that: "Christmas with your family, Easter with whomever you'd like"... so if you'd like to spend some time with KIT, here some suggestions!

Apologies: We are very sorry that sometime KIT newsletter shows different fonts and formats... the program we use (a very popular one indeed) is very independent and without apparent reasons, it decides not to change font or color or size... and we accept its decision and continue anyway...
