  • Stony Brook University’s 12th annual Concorso d’Eleganza was a success! Approximately 80 Italian cars rallied at the University located in the suburbs of New York City in order to show their cars and to attest to the “elegance” of Italian design. The event is hosted by the University’s Center for Italian Studies, which looks to promote the Italian language and culture both within and outside of the University.
  • Antonin Scalia
    Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Antonin Scalia
    Stony Brook University’s Center for Italian studies, directed by professor Mario Mignone, organized a conference to remember Justice Antonin G. Scalia, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States (1986-2016). Presenters discussed both their experiences with the Supreme Court Justice and the influences he has had on the Italian-American community and the American Judicial System.
  • Food for Thought / Stuzzichini (with Piero Bassetti & Niccolò D'Aquino)
    As we look at Italy's contemporary immigration policies and the resultant challenges, we sometimes muse that, had Italy studied more profoundly its own historical emigration, perhaps it might better comprehend (read, be more sensitive to) its current situation. Now, as we ponder Bassetti's notion of Italicity, we might actually engage in an even exchange or sorts, and learn something from Italy in similar regard. Save the Date! Book Presentation of "Italic Lessons". April 20, 6 PM, Calandra Institute. Panelists include: Francesco Maria Talò, Niccolò D'Aquino, Anthony J. Tamburri, Peter Carravetta, Mario Mignone, Gianpaolo Pioli, Stefano Vaccara, Letizia Airos. Send your questions&comments to [email protected] We'll submit them to Piero Bassetti during the conference!
