Gabrielle Calabro is the Director of Student Life at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Bologna–and such a huge fan of the ball that she even designs the according posters herself which are distributed all over the SAIS building in the Via Beniamino Andreatta, right in the center of the legendary university district of Bologna. Each year since 2016, Gabrielle and her colleagues organize a trip for their students to Vienna to come to the ball. In 2019, 160 students and many more alumni from Austria attended the festivities at the town hall. This is becoming one of our most cherished traditions. And so we are looking forward again to welcome Gabrielle and the crowd from Bologna on 25 January 2020. Grazie mille, Gabrielle, e a presto a Vienna!
