Hear about Capri and Pompeii, sleeping fauns and folk festivals, and toga parties and cypress trees as we discuss the quirks of Italian history, culture, and landscapes that have fascinated Americans for generations.

Please meet on the Third Level of the Stent Wing galleries near the large stained-glass window by John La Farge at 6:30 p.m. Seating is first come, first served.
