The Art of Nando Pellegrino
A painting is a million moments of observation. When I make a painting I am amazed at how the light changes round the subject from moment to moment. The light moves through the object creating multiple illusions of colors. I take my brush from the paint and place the mark on the surface only to see the light has changed. I am intrigued how the colors and hues develop relationship between objects in the painting. I begin to chase the light. The game starts between me and the light of brilliant colors as together we create a literal abstract of depicted landscapes, cityscapes, figures and still lifes. The light moves quickly through the scenery connecting the organic and the architecture. It teases me saying catch me if you can. The painting then becomes connected together through a puzzle of geometric forms created from marks and colors. The end result becomes my magical world of observation. My purpose is to create a threshold that invites everyone into this world.
Rincorrendo la luce
Un quadro e' fatto di un milione di momenti di osservazione. Quando dipingo mi meraviglio di quanto la luce cambi gli oggetti da un momento all'altro. La luce si muove attraverso l'oggetto creando multiple illusioni di colori. Quando prendo il pennello colorato e lo metto sulla tela mi accorgo che la luce e' gia' cambiata. Mi incuriosisce come i colori e le sfumature sviluppino un rapporto tra oggetti e quadri. Inizio ad inseguire la luce. Comincio a giocare con i colori brillanti della luce ed insieme creiamo paesaggi astratti o realistici, citta', forme e natura morta. Il quadro diventa il legame con un mosaico di forme geometriche, di punti e colori. Il risultato diventa il magico mondo di osservazione. Il mio scopo e' di costruire la porta che invita chiunque in questo mondo.

"The Socio-Political Engagement of Italian Women Filmmakers"
Lecture by Flavia Laviosa - Wellesley College
Associazione e Gruppo di Lavoro Donne D'Abruzzo in collaboration with the Dante Alighieri Society and the Consulate General of Italy
Italian women directors weave together private spheres and
public events, revisit historical wounds, and explore contemporary realities. As they assemble these elements, as the tiles of a sociopolitical
mosaic, they create a montage of artistic documents and provocative testimonies.This lecture will illustrate the most representative directors whose films have received international recognition.

An American Journey
Revels acclaimed 40-member ensemble, Revels Repertory Company, brings the story of American immigration to life through music and song in this original 90-minute stage production that finds Italians, Irish and Eastern European Jews on a crowded passenger ship bound for America in 1907, at the height of American immigration.
Sharing their music and songs, their dances and their dreams, the diverse group of travelers become one as they leave their homelands - but not their cultures - behind, in search of a better life in America, the land of hope and promise.

The Salt of Life
a film by Gianni di Gregorio
Chasing the Light In his warm and witty follow-up to the 2010 sleeper hit Mid-August Lunch, writer-director-actor Gianni Di Gregorio has created another sparkling comedy-this time with a dash of the bittersweet. In The Salt of Life, Gianni plays a middle-aged retiree who has become invisible to
all distaff Romans, regardless of age or relation. He contends with an aristocratic, spendthrift mother (again played by Lunch's great nonagenarian Valeria de Franciscis); a wife who is more patronizing friend than romantic partner; a daughter (played by Di Gregorio's daughter Teresa) with a slacker boyfriend whom Gianni unwillingly befriends; and a wild young neighbor who sees him merely as her dog walker. Watching his "codger" friends snare beautiful younger women on the sun-kissed cobblestones of Trastevere, Gianni tries his polite, utterly gracious best to generate some kind of extracurricular love life-with both hilarious and poignant results.

While on an international tour of North America. Daniele is an influential Italian jazz-fusion guitarist. He has released 30 studio albums since 1975. Born in Naples, Italy on March 19, 1955, self-taught guitarist Pino Daniele recorded his first album at the age of 22. From the beginning of his career, it was evident that his passion lay in rock and blues. Greatly influenced by his own cultural background, his music was a successful fusion of tradition and modernity.
His solo debut, Terra Mia, sung in Neapolitan, was the first example of what Daniele called "taramblù," a combination of tarantella, rhumba, and blues. In 1979 his self-titled sophomore record was released, followed by Nero a Metà in 1980, and that same year Daniele was invited to open for reggae superstar Bob Marley for his show in Milan. During the next few years the artist continued exploring his various Mediterranean, African, and Western inspirations-found in albums like Common Ground, a collaboration with American folk singer Richie Havens, and the Middle Eastern-influenced Bonne Soirée-as well as writing soundtracks for films by Massimo Troisi.
In 1989 Daniele took a step toward greater commercial success with the release of the pop record Mascalzone Latino, followed by another deluge of albums, including 1991's Un Uomo in Blues, 1993's Che Dio Ti Benedica (which had two tracks produced by Chick Corea), 1995's Non Calpestare I Fiori Nel Deserto, 1997's Dimmi Cosa Succede Sulla Terra, and 2000's Medina.
Two years later the singer teamed up with fellow Italian stars Francesco DeGregori, Ron, and Fiorella Mannoia for a tour, captured on the appropriately titled In Tour. In 2005 Daniele released Iguana Café, another studio record. Between 2005 and 2010, Daniele released three more studio albums: Il Mio Nome e Pino Daniele e Vivo Qui, Ricomincio da 30, and Electric Jam. In 2010, Daniele released his 13th studio album, Boogie Boogie Man.
On June 24, 2011, in Salerno, Italy, Pino Daniele performed side by side with the English blues rock superstar Eric Clapton. A benefit for children's causes in Italy, the concert sold out to capacity at the Stadio di Cava de' Tirreni.

Memory Traces: A Collection of Italian Memories of Boston
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Unification of Italy, the Consulate General of Italy in Boston and the MIT Mobile Experience Lab, in partnership with COMITES (Committee of Italians Abroad) of Boston, has developed Memory Traces: A Collection of Italian Memories of Boston. Boston's Italian community dates back to 1860, when the first immigrants came to the United States seeking better conditions than those of their homeland. For the past 150 years, Italian-Americans have played a prominent role in the city of Boston, having distinguished themselves in various disciplines including business, government, medicine, technology, humanities, and academia. Through geo-located video interviews, the Memory Traces project explores the Italian experience in Boston. These recollections from selected representatives of fi rst generation and American born Italians help preserve their heritage for future generations. The use of new media has enabled this interactive documentary. The Memory Traces project website http://locast.mit.edu/memorytraces features the stories overlaid on a map of the city. Stories can be fi ltered by person, time period, and a selection of themes that capture the
messages of the stories. A mobile application provides the opportunity for others to follow these memory trails through the city of Boston.
