Happy 2021 everyone!
Let’s hope for all of our sakes that this will be the year the world returns to health and you can return to Italy! In the meantime, let’s continue our virtual exploration of Italy from the comfort of our respective homes with a new series of presentations.
Have you ever wondered why traveling from one Italian city to the next feels like traveling from one country to another even though you have only driven for a couple of hours?… or why, within the same city, certain buildings, churches, or palaces border with stylistic or artistic “anomalies”?
While you may know enough about this country you adore to conclude that History is the secret artist behind the canvas, you might enjoy digging a bit deeper and taking another tour with your own history guide!
For the first presentation in this new series of talks on Italian cities, we will once again turn to Enrico to reveal to us how History shaped the artistic and architectural landscape of his native Naples as he leads us through a photographic tour of the city in search of signs of centuries past and foreign influences.

This class is a continuation of the advanced beginning level classes. It is also a level we recommend for people who studied Italian in college and had a good ability to converse in the indicative tenses, perhaps also in the conditional but have not used the language for some time and feel in need of a good review and practice.
