The Cultural Committee of the Italian Heritage Society of Indiana has engaged with local speakers to offer a compelling and educational series of talks on Italian culture, history and art by focusing on different regions.

Le Marche is in the central region of Italy, bordered by Umbria and Tuscany - with a lush and diverse topography: hilly, mountainous and coastal. Not so much a destination for tourists, it retains its authenticity and natural beauty.

Our Speaker and Lecture:

Evan Anderson-Decina has a BS in Architecture from Ball State University and a Master's in Architecture from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. Evan is a second generation Italian-American. He lived in the Marche with a local family, in a study abroad program. As an architectural major, he spent his time focusing on architecture and art, but will share with us the many aspects of culture particular to this region based on his experiences, including photographs.

The 2 hour program, which includes a time for enjoying some refreshments, is completely free. Contact Susan Lew for information; [email protected]

Free to the public
