Global studies major Lorenzo Marchetti is a man of many hats here on campus, serving as president of 2020 A Year Without War, co-president of the honors program, co-commissioner of marketing on the Student Senate and Italian Club president. Most of all, he is Italian. “Let’s promote what I am [100 percent Italian],” Marchetti said. “Let’s promote this culture that people only hear about,” Marchetti said.

Italians like Marchetti will have a chance to promote their culture in the 2017 Cinema Italiano Classico film festival, which will have screenings on March 11, 18 and 25. The festival is hosted by the nonprofit organization Italian Cultural Heritage Foundation of Santa Barbara and will be at the Fé Bland Forum.
