As part of Majors Week 2016 the Italian Studies faculty hosted an aperitivo italiano yesterday evening in Washington Hall. It proved to be a great way to connect with current and future Italian Studies students, and to share some Italian culture. Over lemon sodas, parmigiano and various salatini (salty snacks) and affettati (cured meats), graduating seniors shared memories of studies and research trips abroad, while new arrivals learned about the program, including upcoming course offerings, the Italian Studies minor, and the chance to create their own Italian-focused major through the Charles Center. A great time was had by all. Cin cin!
