Please join one or both cultural activities sponsored by the Italian American Club from January until the end of April and in the fall, from October through December.

1. Italian Language and Culture: Beginners every Friday morning from 9:00 until 9:55 a.m. in the Milan Room starting January 5; Intermediate, every Friday morning, from 10:00 until 10:55 a.m. in the Milan Room starting January 5.

2. Italian Film Series, every first and third Thursday of the month, starting on Thursday, January 4, at 2:00 p.m., Chianti South Room. Films (by and large in Italian with English subtitles) are selected to offer authentic Italian and Italian American experiences focusing on fundamental aspects of Italian history and culture.

The instructor is Dino Cervigni, a retired professor of Italian studies, who knows only one way of teaching: making learning Italian an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

The Romans used to say: Mens sana in corpore sano—the Italians say: Mente sana in corpo sano. That is, a healthy mind in a healthy body.
