This exceptional presentation helped us get into the Italian Christmas mood and start putting the tragedies of 2020 behind.
Thanks to Antimo Cimino who moderated this event with four of his friends directly from Italy (all excited to get up at the crack of dawn to join us live!). Igor Scomparin from Venice, Bice Della Piana from Salerno, Daniela Leopizzi from Lecce, and Agata Di Fede from Catania. They shared regional Christmas stories and traditions unique to their areas and gave us a sense of similarities and differences in the Italian Culture.

September 2020 Event
Celebrating Naples - A Journey Through History
Anita Sanseverino from the East Coast focused on the illustrious history of this once royal kingdom going back to her origins as Parthenope, the Greek city which was the beginning of Naples. She took us through this history, with the various rulers who occupied Naples, and why the unification of Italy might not have been the best thing to happen to the city. And she discussed why Naples should be on everyone's list to visit!
