Prof. Nicola Lucchi, Lecturer in the Department of European Languages and Literatures, will discuss Margherita Sarfatti’s 1937 travelogue. In particular, he will illustrate how Sarfatti, a major Italian intellectual and, at one point, Mussolini’s lover, considered the Italian American linguistic identity as an antidote to ideas of racial purity. This event is co-sponsored by the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute.
Light refreshments will be served
