About this Event

What is it about Italy? Cultural Superpower yet merely a mountainous Mediterranean peninsula, Italy has exerted an out-sized force on the world, Western civilization and the popular imagination over the course of millennia. Explore the special alchemy of Italy and the “cultural DNA” that has made Italy and Italians not only so influential, but also so beloved. A edu-taining lecture in which you will discover fascinating new insights about the “Boot’s” long history of substance over size by Carla Gambescia, author of La Dolce Vita University: An Unconventional Guide to Italian Culture from A-Z, an eclectic compendium of all things Italian: food, wine, history, architecture, art, style, anecdotes, attitude and more which, according to Primo Magazine, “… may have done the impossible in capturing the rich cultural history in less than 300 pages.” Lecture will be followed by Q & A, book available for purchase and signing, refreshments to follow.
