  • VIRTUAL – Celebrating Dante Alighieri Live from Italy!
    10:00 AM-11:00 AM
    11/06/2021

    Celebrating Dante Alighieri 700 years after his death. 

    Dante meets Ulysses: A journey through the Inferno’s XXVI canto   • Live from Rome! 

    The most dramatic event in Canto XXVI is Dante’s meeting with Ulysses, who carried out the strategy of the Trojan Horse, which led to the fall of Troy and eventually to the founding of the Roman line by Aeneas.
    Ulysses is punished for events that would have been acceptable, even praised, in the time in which he lived. Dante falters from his concept that sinners are only punished according to the social standards of their time.

    In this presentation, you will discover similarities and differences between the Ulysses of the Comedy and the Ulysses of Homer Odyssey, and also between Ulysses and Dante himself.

    Join us in this presentation Live from Italy on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 10 am ET, 4 pm in Italy, and 7 am PT.

    If you cannot participate in the live webinar, please note that all registered attendees will receive a recording of the session. We can’t wait for you to join us!

    In accordance with NYC mandates, proof of Covid-19 vaccination is required.

    Directly from San Gimignano, Tuscany!

    Experience the passion of an engaging and entertaining sommelier, who will share his love for wine education and extensive knowledge. During a warm and engaging evening at Casa Belvedere, you will sample premier Tuscan wines from Tenuta Torciano, a luxury winery in Tuscany specializing in producing fine wines for over three centuries.

    Learn how wine is made in Tuscany; the eight most important wine grapes; and how the soil, climate, and history make Tuscan wines among the best in the world. Learn how to evaluate wine by sight, swirl, sniff and sip. Unlike other wine tastings, the Wine School of Tenuta Torciano takes something seemingly elementary and turns it into a brilliant and captivating experience.

    Delicious Italian cheeses, salami, and Italian bread will accompany the variety of wines presented at this limited attendance event. You will also sample Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Truffle Olive Oil, and an Aged Reserved Balsamic Vinegar.

    Tenuta Torciano is the product of the passion and hard work of a Tuscan family for over 15 generations. Today, Pierluigi Giachi, together with his wife Luciana Cilemmi and son Emanuele Bartolomeo Giachi, carries on an ancient family tradition. Pierluigi Giachi does not like to call himself a winemaker, but rather he considers himself to be a countryman of Tuscany.

    The wines presented in this wine tasting are not sold in stores.

  • VIRTUAL – Italy: The World’s Lifestyle Superpower
    7:00 PM-9:00 PM
    11/30/2021

    Italy: The World’s Lifestyle Superpower 

    A Virtual Cultural Program presented on Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 7 pm

    Italians have always been masters of reinvention. In this fascinating exploration of post World War II Italy, we will explore how the country rose from the ashes and devastation to transform from the face of Il Duce to La Dolce Vita, and how “Brand Italy” came to conquer the world through its passion and excellence in the realms of film, fashion and design, gastronomy, and viticulture. The program will be presented virtually by lecturer and award-winning author Carla Gambescia, who has been an advertising and marketing executive, entrepreneur and restaurateur. She co-created the Giro del Gelato bike tour which won OUTSIDE Magazine’s “Best Trip in Western Europe.”
