  • You might know Anthony Valerio from his previous stories, novels and biographies, and if you do, then you’ll have found that he is a master of the love story. Whether it’s street love in Brooklyn, the historical romance between Giuseppe and Anita Garibaldi, or the illicit affair between a writer and a married woman that’s mediated by a gangster the common thread of them all is love: how people live with it and without it. In his latest work, Valerio reaches back to the Renaissance master Dante Alighieri and explores this theme in a very unique way.
  • “Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer" opens in November at the Met

  • Renowned Italian director and actor Massimiliano Finazzer Flory will feature Leonardo Da Vinci on October 12th and 13th at 202 Coffey Street in Red Hook. The artist will bring the prototype of Leonardo da Vinci’s bicycle with him. This fascinating object will be shown at the Columbus Day Parade, and it will also be included in Finazzer’s shows. This is a unique opportunity to touch a piece of history hailing from the greatest artist of the Italian Renaissance.
  • "Being Leonardo da Vinci," written by and starring Massimiliano Finazzer Flory, depicts the Renaissance Man in all his glory as he is interviewed by a modern day journalist. The format is rather unique: old Leonardo sits across a reporter who asks him about anything, partly in English, partly in Renaissance Italian and partly in dance.
  • Io e Calliope, an exhibition by Ileana Florescu, consists of twelve works, each a double page of approximately twelve photographs with word balloons (some in Italian, others in English). Each work represents a fotoromanzo (literally a photo-novel) a popular magazine format born in Italy in the 1940's.
