Cari italiani e cari amici dell'Italia

la programmazione del mese di febbraio vede diversi appuntamenti tra i quali desidero segnalarvi in particolare la serata italiana organizzata al Boston Children's Museum. L'Italian Carnival Night e' un evento dedicato alle famiglie nel corso del quale potremo celebrare tutti insieme il carnevale con musica, danze e artisti teatrali italiani nella prestigiosa cornice del Children's Museum.  Vi aspettiamo numerosi!
 
Tra gli ulteriori diversi appuntamenti vi ricordo Destination Europe, evento organizzato dalla Commissione europea per la promozione delle opportunità offerte dai centri di ricerca ed università europee al quale parteciperà anche l'Addetto scientifico dell'Ambasciata d'Italia a Washington Giulio Busulini nonché un incontro con Dacia Mariani che si terrà presso la Dante Alighieri Society  all'inizio del prossimo mese.
 
Inoltre, come molti di voi sapranno grande importanza viene data all'esame AP di italiano che i migliori allievi danno alla fine della High School. E' un esame al quale gli allievi arrivano dopo un percorso di studi della nostra lingua e cultura che coinvolge tutti i livelli scolastici e, in diversa misura, tutti i docenti.  Al riguardo, vi invito a leggere e diffondere le informazioni contenute nell'apposito spazio informativo dell'Ufficio scolastico contenuto in questa newsletter.
 
Infine, per tutti coloro che cercano una nuova opportunità di lavoro segnalo che e' stato bandito presso questo Consolato un concorso per l'assunzione di un impiegato a contratto da adibire ai servizi di autista-commesso-centralinista, il cui avviso di assunzione troverete qui sotto.
 
Un cordiale saluto e buona lettura a tutti!
Nicola De Santis

Dear Italians and dear friends of Italy,
 
The month of February has several events I want to point out to you, in particular the Italian evening at the Boston Children's Museum "Italian Carnival Night" dedicated to families. We will celebrate all together the Carnival with music, dances and Italian theater artists at the prestigious Boston Children's Museum. Come and celebrate with us!
 
Among the many appointments I remind you Destination Europe, an event organized by the European Commission for the promotion of European research centers, Universities and their programs. Our scientific attaché from the Embassy in Washington, Giulio  Busulini , will participate. Also, a conversation with Dacia Maraini will take place at the Dante Alighieri Society at the beginning of next month.
 
Furthermore, many of you already know the great importance of the Italian AP exam which the best students take the last year of High School.  These students are able to take the exam after a course of studies in our language and culture that involve all scholastic levels and, to a different degree, all teachers of Italian. On this topic I invite you to read and spread the information contained in the Scholastic Office space within this newsletter.
 
Finally, to those of you looking for work, I would like to point out that this Consulate has a job opening for an employee with duties of driver-receptionist. You will find the information below.
 
Best wishes and happy reading to all!
Nicola De Santis

Viva l'Italiano: Support AP Italian Language in NE - Click here to learn more! 
Under the auspices of the Italian Consulate in Boston, COMITES are seeking support in a joint effort to expand the offering of AP-level courses in Italian language and culture in high schools throughout New England. AP (or Advanced Placement) are courses that reward students and schools that offer more advanced programs in Italian and allow students to earn college credits while in high school. Students who successfully pass an AP class in Italian and 2 more in a different discipline can also enroll in Italian universities without further evidence of language skills.

Caffé Italiano is a conversation group (started at the North Eastern University) taking place during the Fall and
 Spring semesters where you can practice speaking, meet

Dacia Maraini - Scrivere come respirare

Writing like Breathing is a homage
to Dacia Maraini, celebrating a writing
career that has spanned over half a century.
It is a unique anthology comprising
some of her most important works, the
majority of which have never been translated
into English. The collection emphasizes
Maraini's long relationship with
the Unites States and Japan, and it is
enriched by an unpublished short story
(A Christmas in the Snow Globe), as well
as by interviews, and by talks given by
the author at American universities.
This distinctive volume truly embraces
academic collaboration, as it is the product
of scholars from numerous countries,
including Canada, Italy, the United
Kingdom and the United States.
The anthology will be a welcome and
enjoyable addition for students and
researchers of Dacia Maraini, her work,
Italian culture, and the standing of women
in the world.

Quarterly Review - Accademia della Cucina Italiana
Osteria Nino - Burlington, Ma
 ACCADEMIA

Commitment and Research for the protection of the traditions of Italian cuisine

The Accademia Italiana della Cucina was born - naturally at the dinner table, as is often the case with important things - when a group of friends, united at dinner on the 29th of July of 1953, heard and agreed with the idea which Orio Vergani had long been nurturing: that of founding an academy with the task of safeguarding, together with the traditions of Italian cuisine, the culture of the civilisation of the table, lively and active expression of the entire Nation.


Review of Osteria Nino, located on 19 3rd Avenue, Burlington, MA 
 
Our delegation of 16 diners recently got together at Osteria Nino, located in Burlington, MA.  The overall experience has been great. This osteria has been established only 5 months ago and its menu is massively influenced by the typical Roman dishes. Both the general manager and the culinary director of Osteria Nino have extensive work experience in Rome where they met and decided to create this idea of "typical Roman style dishes" around the Boston area.  The service is fabulous while the actual size of the osteria is big enough to accommodate private and non-private functions. They have multiple wood ovens inside and outside (for both winter and summer wood oven recipes). We were particularly impressed by the quality of their "Primi", boasting delicious Roman style "tonnarelli cacio e pepe" or cavatelli all'amatriciana" or even " gnocchi al tartufo". "Porchetta" was also cooked to perfection. The pairing of exquisite wines with each dish was also superb. Finally, the "torta al cioccolato fondente" prepared without flour was simply to die for.  Parking (plenty) and convenience (right off Rt. 128 North) make the location easy to access. Overall, our accademici found Osteria Nino and its employees a very good place to taste authentic Roman style recipes. For these reason we decided to award Osteria Nino with our unique sticker to be affixed on their entrance door.
