I am pleased to announce the 2021 Italian Week organized by myself and the Italian division at Loyola University Maryland that will be held virtually on ZOOM from February 21 to 25. The topic this year is Little Italies: the Impact and Importance of Italian Language, Heritage, and Culture in the U.S.
Our own Dr. Marc De Simone from Baltimore will present on Thursday evening @ 7 p.m. with other prominent members of Little Italies around the country (Including discussions on Little Italies in Baltimore, Philadelphia and San Francisco). We also have a fun family feud game on Wednesday with the Italian Club, as well as a movie on Monday presented by myself!
Thank you very much for spreading the word! I hope you can attend some of these events.
