Event description

Description

Did you know...Mardi Gras has its roots in Italy’s Carnevale? The celebration was first celebrated in Venice in 1094. Carnevale then spread from medieval Italy to the French Bourbon kings and eventually to France’s colonies, including Louisiana. In 1718, Governor Bienville established Mardi Gras in New Orleans!

Learn more about Italian culture and Italy’s connection to New Orleans through the American Italian Cultural Center’s winter 2019 Italian language classes. All classes are taught by Alessandro, a native Italian teacher, and have a friendly, motivating atmosphere. Our small class sizes allow personalized instruction and foster friendships amongst students and the teacher.
