Cari Amici dell'Italia,

 

Inanzitutto i miei piu' fervidi auguri di Buona Pasqua a voi e alle vostre famiglie.

 

Sono tre gli eventi legati all'Anno della Cultura che si svolgeranno ad aprile. Le due serate di balletto contemporaneo della COMPAGNIA SPELLBOUND allo Shubert Theatre. Il SEMINARIO ECONOMICO DEDICATO A FRANCO MODIGLIANI che organizzeremo il 9 aprile al MIT: e' un appuntamento da non perdere e per cui occorre registrarsi (pochi posti sono ancora disponibili). L'inaugurazione della straordinaria MOSTRA DI DISEGNI DI MICHELANGELO al Museum of Fine Arts il 21 aprile.

 

Attiro poi la vostra attenzione su ITALIANISSIMO!, la serata di gala di beneficenza a favore della lingua e della cultura italiana che si svolgera' il 7 giugno alla Boston Public Library. Sara' entusiasmante e chi partecipa contribuira' ad una buona causa!

 

Un'altra data da segnare sul calendario e' l'11 giugno, quando ENRICO RAVA suonera' per la prima volta al Berklee Performance Center. Accorrete numerosi!!!

 

Per chi non ha avuto ancora occasione, ricordo che sino al 1 maggio sara' in esposizione al Museum of Fine Arts il BRUTO CAPITOLINO, uno straordinario prestito dai Musei Capitolini di Roma.

The ECONOMIC SEMINAR DEDICATED TO FRANCO MODIGLIANI held on April 9 at MIT is an important event not to be missed; please register ahead of time since seating is limited. Finally, the extraordinary exhibition of MICHELANGELO'S MASTER DRAWINGS, at the Museum of Fine Arts, which will open on April 21st.

 

I would like to highlight ITALIANISSIMO! SERATA DI GALA, the annual fundraiser dedicated to Italian language and culture which will take place at the Boston Public Library on June 7th. An exciting night for those who will be attending, while supporting a good cause!

Memory Traces: A Collection of Italian Memories of Boston 

 

logo 150

 

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 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

http://locast.mit.edu/memorytraces/ messages of the stories. A mobile application provides the opportunity for others to follow these memory trails through the city of Boston.
