Celebrating the history and scenic beauty of Campania
Thursday, March 18 at 7 pm
Featuring Anita Sanseverino and Louis Barrella   

Campania felix translates to “happy countryside,” which is what the early Romans called this region in southwestern Italy. This area was settled long before the Romans – even before the Greeks! Join Anita Sanseverino and Lou Barella as they celebrate the history and scenic beauty of the Campania region.

Learn about Magna Graecia, Partenopea, the Kingdom of Naples, the maritime Republic of Amalfi with its beautiful coast … these are just some of the highlights that Anita will describe in her presentation. Enjoy Anita’s photographs, and a video created by Lou Barella to further enhance your appreciation for this beautiful region of Italy.
