When: April 29, 2020
Speaker: Gianfranco Foddai
Gianfranco comes from Tissi, with a population of 2000, located in the north-west area of Sardegna (Sardinia). He moved to Seattle on November 2017, after having married his wife Jen. He has been working as a professional musician since he was on his 20s. Nowadays, he teaches music for Fingerprint School of Music in Seattle, performs with a bunch of local artists, and enjoys spending a lot of time with his one year old daughter Lucille.
The talk will start with a very brief introduction about Sardinia’s most characteristic aspects. After that Gianfranco will talk about Sardinia geography and how it has helped to preserve its unique culture, history and art, at least before mass media. The talk will finish with a short music performance of a couple Sardinian popular songs.
DANTE ALIGHIERI SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON
Live Meeting COVID Guidelines
Even as COVID variants continue to plague the population, we have returned to offering live meetings for Dante this season. We’ve all been longing for a return to shared meals, and since this is foundational to Dante activities, we want to make it possible. Following the guidelines and regulations now in place by many workplaces, public venues and community groups, the Dante Board of Directors has agreed to the guidelines listed below as an acceptable plan to keep us as safe as possible when meeting in person.
1) Please do not attend if you have been exposed to COVID, or are experiencing any symptoms of illness. We will make best efforts to record the presentations so that those who cannot attend in person can enjoy them afterwards. There will also be a few meetings presented on ZOOM instead of live this season, for all to enjoy.
2) Masks are encouraged. Although no longer required, we encourage attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
Thank you again for your understanding and observance of these guidelines. Let’s work together to control COVID!!!
