  • 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.

  • A new book explores the life of Marta Abba (1900-1988) - acclaimed actress of the Italian and American stages and Luigi Pirandello's muse. A discussion and reading of the pair's letters took place at Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò on November 19th.
