If you love Italian food and music, you’re in for a treat at Arcosanti’s Italian Night event on July 8. The well-known “urban laboratory,” founded in the 1970s by Paolo Soleri, is the venue for the evening. This Arcosanti tradition celebrates the heritage of Soleri, who was born in Torino, Italy, and features a special meal served outdoors under the Arcosanti Vaults in the setting of Italian cypress and olive trees.
