Friday, June 12, 2020 - 5.30 pm - 6.30 pm EST. 45 minutes lecture, 15 minutes Q & A. The webinar will take place online through Cisco Webex Meetings. The event is $10 for all Filitalia members and non members. RSVP is required, so please reserve your ticket online.

Join Angela Cacciarru and discover why Salento is called “magic”. Because of the stunning beauty of this sub-peninsula made largely of limestone, or the enchanting coastline where the turquoise of the sea melts into the bright blue sky and the clouds are mirrored in the ocean’s azure expanse?

Because of the enchanting small towns where you can experience the Dolce Vita and lose yourself in the colors and scents of the Mediterranean countryside? Or because of the ancient beat of the Taranta dance, with its mythological roots and its intoxicating rhythm?

We could say that it is for all these reasons and more, and in the lecture dedicated to Salento and to the night in which the Taranta is celebrated, you will find new magic in beautiful Salento and its astounding culture.

About Angela Cacciarru: Angela was born and raised in Italy, and has more than twenty years of experience as an instructor of Italian language and culture. She got her BA in Economics from the University of Cagliari, in Sardinia, where she also collaborated with a poetry magazine as an editor and author.
