Italian Week 2009

Loyola's Department of Modern Languages and Literatures will celebrate Italian language and culture during its 9th annual Italian Week, Feb. 19 – 26. Here at the library, you can peruse a selection of books on Italian culture, including cookbooks, travel books, art books and works of Italian literature. You'll find the exhibit on the main level, underneath the Italian flag.

In addition, the film “L’orchestra di Piazza Vittorio” will be screened in the Library auditorium on Wednesday, Feb. 25, from 6 - 8 p.m. The film documents the creation of an orchestra that formed while the musicians were trying to find ways to save a theatre and concert hall. Read more about it in the New York Times.
