All’ICCC (At the ICCC) – May/June 2021 – Letter from Monica Ercolani

Carissimi amici di ICCC,

I can’t believe almost half of this 2021 has already passed! I am very excited to share with you what has been going on inside of our Centro Culturale Italiano.

 

We had an amazing lecture by Prof. Dominic Aquila on March 25th to celebrate DanteDí. After many months, we were finally able to open our doors and welcome “live” many enthusiastic fans of Dante Alighieri. Italian Consul General Federico Ciattaglia made the opening remarks and Prof. Aquila took us on Dante’s eternal journey (here the details)

The Film series is continuing regularly, alternating streaming and in-person to accommodate everybody (here the full schedule)

I am very excited to reveal big news: we are launching a completely new website for the ICCC! We want to embrace the return of real-life with something more modern, easy to navigate, trendy, and very energizing! Stay tuned!

Our Italian school is always adding new classes and projects (check the dedicated page here) and remember …It’s never too late to learn Italian, one of the most beautiful languages in the world. Classes are available for all levels – from beginners to advanced, for children and adults.
