Drawn together by a shared interest in the culture and people of Italy—past, present, and future—the community of scholars who comprise Italian Studies at Notre Dame come from a diverse array of academic disciplines.

We invite you to join in our exploration of why all roads still lead to Italy.

All are welcome to our first event of the semester: a talk by Brian K. Reynolds (Fu Jen University), entitled "Dante’s Prayer to the Virgin, the Commedia and the Marian Tradition," taking place on Thursday September 4 at 4:30pm in Special Collections, Hesburgh Libraries.
