Travel to Italy not on your calendar yet? How would you like to tiptoe around the Civic and Archeological Museum of Manduria, in the South of Puglia? It's almost like being there!
Join us as Antimo Cimino, a native from Puglia, introduces us to the ancient civilization of the Messapians. A tribe that inhabited the Southern Ionian coastal towns of Puglia at the beginning of the third century BC. The region is known today as the Salento. To accompany the evening presentation, a couple of Antimo's friends Angela Greco and Monica Marasco will join us directly from Italy to share with us stories, history, and customs unique to this enchanting region and civilization.
Antimo is a Board Member of Italian Portland and well known in our circle, however, here is a short bio in case you don't know him.
