Lectures
In the fourteenth century, Siena reached what some might call its golden age of art and architecture. In this lecture, Dr. Judith Steinhoff will contextualize selected masterpieces from Late Medieval Siena, exploring the political ideals that shaped them and what they can teach us about art and culture in trecento Italy.

Enrichment Classes
From the lovelorn and feud-vexed streets of Romeo and Juliet’s Verona and the ancient Roman forum in which Julius Caesar was assassinated, to the frothy mix of sex, money, and intrigue of Shylock and Othello’s Venice, Shakespeare’s fascination with Italy inspired his work as a playwright. Join us for a four-week course with Dr. Dustin Gish on Shakespeare’s Italian plays.

Food & Wine
Calling all Italian wine lovers! Join us for a tasting of Piedmontese and Sardinian wines with guest speaker and sommelier Pierina Bianchini of Emotion for Passion. From the gentle, rolling slopes of Piedmont to the rocky, volcanic interior of Sardinia, we’ll venture off the beaten track to explore some exceptional yet little-known wines. As always, our wine tasting will be accompanied by Italian-style light bites.

Food & Wine
Join us on a tasting tour of Tuscany (no passport required) as we explore four wines produced by the new generation of Tuscan winemakers. Some of them have family histories of winemaking that span hundreds of years, others are relative newcomers with a passion for viniculture—but all of them make fantastic wine. Stefano Milici and Thomas Geninatti of Vinello will guide us through the tasting, which will be accompanied by Italian-style light bites.
