Italian Language Meeting – October 28, 2020
October 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
When: October 28, 2020
Speaker: Francesca Carmichael
Topic: Italian Linens and Hand-stamping in Romagna
There will be a “social hour” beginning at 7 pm. The presentation will start at 7:30.
Francesca Carmichael will speak about the hand-stamped, block print linens typical of the Romagna region of Italy. Francesca is the proprietor of Italian Linen Store ( http://www.italianlinenstore.com), a “molto italiano” store that is located in Bellevue. Its Italian hand-stamped linens for the home exemplify the antique craft that has continued to the present day with the products from Stamperia Bertozzi that, using traditional stamping techniques, offers a full range of decorative linens, from the classic to the contemporary.
Born and raised in Cremona, Francesca has lived in various countries and continents in the course of her life, beginning with her time at University, in Venice, then the Middle East, France and so forth, until she landed in Seattle in 2004. Here she opened her first shop in Woodinville importing from Italy antique furniture, hand-painted ceramics, decorative paper and stationery to textiles, a gradual and natural progression that compliments her own artistic nature.
DANTE ALIGHIERI SOCIETY OF WASHINGTON
Live Meeting COVID Guidelines
Even as COVID variants continue to plague the population, we are trying to return 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 like last year.
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!!!
