Italy in NY Calendar
Italian language enrichment course for children ages 4 to 10. Students are grouped by age and ability level in this full immersion enrichment class. The program is designed to allow students to acquire an understanding of and develop basic communication skills in the Italian language, while exploring its culture by engaging directly in interactive learning. They will follow a routine that is meant to reinforce what they have previously acquired and facilitate the acquisition of new topics. It is designed as an immersion language and cultural experience, with the outcome of having children with no previous knowledge or understanding of spoken Italian acquire linguistic communicative skills and an appreciation of Italian culture and way of life.
Passage is an artist’s vision of the movement of immigrants. Yorgos Giotsas uses materials of the earth to bring a tactile feel to his work, thus engaging us in the journey. His images of immigrants in New York City in the early 1900s could be our grandparents from Magna Grecia (Southern Italy). Yet he does not stop there as he moves us visually through the passage, with heart-wrenching yet hopeful images, of immigrants today landing in Sicily. Sponsored by the Italian American Museum/Consulate General of Greece in New York.
