    Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò is hosting an exhibition dedicated to the Italian painter Antonio Sanfilippo, whose “mark” was the base on which he built his abstract compositions
  • We briefly discuss the highlights of the President of the Italian Republic’s visit to New York City. It was a trip that strengthened Italy’s solid ties to the United States and the Italian and Italian-American communities living in New York City
  • Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò (NYU) began its celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Italian Unification with a lecture on the art of singing the works of Giuseppe Verdi, the most representative composer of the Italian Risorgimento
  • A defense of the Italian public school system, attacked by the Prime Minister these days, comes from a New York professor, with an American PhD and who works for a private university. Personal recollections but also references to the history of the Italian school fill this piece which we share completely. As Albertini writes, one must not forget that public school not only had an educational function, but also political. Italian unity was obtained in classrooms. Underpaid but respected teachers created a national sense of belonging by teaching our language, history and literature.
