Rob Prufer Topic: A Bellini in Venice: Seeing the paintings of Giovanni Bellini in Venice, like sitting in a Venetian campo and enjoying the cocktail named after him, is a special treat. What makes Bellini a master of the Venetian Renaissance? And what can we know about his long life and career, given that so little documentary evidence survives? Rob Prufer is a long-time participant in Dante Alighieri Society of Washington activities, including serving several years as vice-president. He isan avid student of the Italian language and Italian art history. He shareshis passion for art history with his students at Newport High School and the wider public in his lecture series at the Bellevue Arts Museum, The Loggia Lectures.

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!!!
