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.

Italian Studies will host several lectures by visiting and local scholars this month, including Franziska Meier (Göttingen) on October 29, Massimo Lollini (Oregon) on November 7, Margaret Meserve (Notre Dame) on November 14 and Don Federico Gallo (Biblioteca Ambrosiana) on November 19. All occur in Special Collections, Hesburgh Library at 4:30pm.
