Word of the week- bacheca

A bacheca (bah-KEH-cah) is a bulletin board (pinboard or notice board in British English). As elsewhere, in Italy they flourish in university settings or in general where young people are. The encroaching online world hasn't gotten rid of these yet; personally, I love them and find it hard to pass one by without taking a peek. Italians also use the word for the Wall in Facebook.
