  • A conversation with Anthony Julian Tamburri at the end of the conference on “Italians in the Americas”. The Dean makes a point on the degrees of perception and diffusion of Italian American culture both in the United States and in Italy. There is much to do and topics such as politics and psychology must be examined in depth and studied. Today the Calandra Institute, under the aegis of CUNY, has got what it takes to become an out-and-out Italian think-tank in America.
  • A conversation on cultural philanthropy among/by Italian Americans is, I would submit, something new to bring to the table. The concept itself, we might have to admit, has yet to be discussed beyond a few occasions by a small number of individuals. We need only look around to the various names on libraries, colleges of arts and humanities, and named (read, privately endowed) professorships for us to realize how far behind Italian America is in cultural philanthropy.
