La Commedia di Dante in Italiano
March 4 (Wednesday) 5:30 pm
The Dante in Italiano group has been reading and talking about the Commedia for two years+ and in March, we read about soothsayers gone sour condemned to the hell of eternally looking backwards. We welcome new members and hope to see returning faces joining us as we continue our steep descent into the realm of fraud. The John D. Calandra Italian American Institute of Queens College/CUNY, hosts the group which is dedicated to reading the entire Commedia in Italian with discussions conducted in Italiano. The group meets two Wednesdays a month. On March 4, we will be begin Canto XX of the Inferno. Our second session is March 18. The group reads the Canto aloud for the pleasure of the Italian language followed by paraphrasing/translation of the text terzina by terzina in standard Italian and freewheeling discussion of any and all issues of interest to anyone in the group. Meetings are scheduled through December 21, 2022. This is not a scholarly academic program but is designed for lovers of Dante, Italy and the Italian language. No particular text is necessary. All the different notes and translations make the discussion more interesting. Everyone, of all ages and backgrounds is welcome. Members of the academic, cultural and publishing communities and native speakers are particularly welcome. All of the discussions in the Dante reading/discussion group are 100% in Italian. For more information, please contact: danteinitalianonyc@yahoo.com.

Marino Marini: Arcadian Nudes
Annual Installation
On view through June 13, 2020
A focused exhibition of sculptures created by Marino Marini, curated by Dr. Flavio Fergonzi of Pisa’s Scuola Normale Superiore. Marino Marini (1901–1980) completed his formal artistic education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where he studied painting and sculpture. After having launched his career in the late 1920s with sculptures that explicitly referenced archaic styles (such as Egyptian, Etruscan, or pre-classical Greek art), Marini took up in particular the theme of the female nude. The continuous study of pure plastic forms through the female body becomes an occasion for him to conduct an independent and solitary research on the expressive possibilities of the nude model through a systematic comparison with the great sculptural tradition from antiquity, through the Renaissance, to Rodin. The exhibition will be the first ever in the United States to present in such depth the greatest examples of Marini’s large nudes, from the Pomona of 1941 to the Dancer of 1949.
