When: October 13, 2021
Where: St. Clement’s Episcopal Church, 1501 32nd Ave. S, Seattle 98144

For the past several years, Domenico Minotti (Nic) has been our quiz-maker for the Dante booth at the annual Festa Italiana at Seattle Center. Nic has prepared another fun quiz for Festa Italiana. This year the focus is on Italian automobiles.

Italian Car

In the late 1920s, Nick’s parents emigrated from Sant’Angelo, Limosano, a small hilltop town in Molise. The population at that time was about 1000 but is now 345 as Nick learned on a visit last year. The family spoke their dialect at home. Nick studied Italian at Columbia University and Perugia and got lots of practice while on Fulbright study grants in Milan in the mid 60’s. Nick returned to the states and to his first love, medicine, at Georgetown University and came to Seattle in 1976 to work at the US Public Health Hospital on Beacon Hill, better known as the Marine Hospital. He and his father Pasquale would attend Dante meetings back then but took a break until retirement a few years ago. Nick serves as a Consigliere for our Dante group.
