Vast claims have been made for the revolutionary potential of the Digital Humanities but few have subjected such claims to intense scrutiny. This talks revisits research conducted in Sicily and the United States in the 1970s (the foundation for From Sicily to Elizabeth Street, 1984;Militants and Migrants, 1988). Transforming information compiled from traditional archives about 3,500 migrants from Sambuca di Sicilia into a digital, relational database has not, to date, suggested any radical revision of the two books. Nevertheless, the ready availability of digital archives, including Ancestry.com, along with the impact of new digital communication tools, have not only inspired a significant upsurge of citizen, roots-seeking researchers but also has opened new possibilities for scholars to collaborate with the families and descendants of Sambuca's migrants. Bringing together the demographic and social historical concerns of an early generation of scholars with digital citizen researchers' familial and identitarian concerns could produce knowledge that will significantly alter both groups' understanding of the past.
Egg pasta is the prized pasta type that is enjoyed throughout Central and Northern Italy. Similarly like the dried pasta, this one also is composed of two ingredients: an unbleached all-purpose flour and eggs. Although the egg pasta cooks in a flash, the rolling process can be done manually by hand on a wooden work surface or using a crank machine. In this hands-on pasta making workshop, you’ll learn about garganelli and how this ridged tube pasta shape is formed using a distinct tool for this specific pasta. Participate in creating your own dried pasta with La Scuola Chef, who will be demonstrating how to create the pasta from scratch. In this class guests will:
- Learn about dried pasta and how to make it at home.
- Discuss the sauces that are traditionally paired with garganelli.
- Make their own garganelli pasta dough to take home.
- Enjoy a pasta dish prepared by La Scuola Chef paired with a wine.
- Take home the menu, adapted recipes and wine tasting notes.

Rarely seen photos of the art punk scene in 1980s Naples will be on view at the Italian Cultural Institute from December 8, 2017 to January 12, 2018.
Against the backdrop of a city exacerbated by urban disaster, an unruly artistic movement emerged, calling themselves the "Neapolitan Savages," and for a brief moment, their utopian credo -- counter public corruption and the new political makeup with creative anarchy -- gave hope to a people debased by the oppressions throughout history.
Curated by Paolo Pontoniere and Toty Ruggieri, in collaboration with Comune di Napoli, Accademia di Belle Arti Napoli and Campania Felix LLC.
Friday, December 8, 2017 | 6:30pm - 8:30pm
