View this email in your browser

Ciao tutti -
At our next Italian Program Meeting on Wednesday, March 28 Fr. Tom Lucas S.J., professor of art history at Seattle University, will present “Roma Barocca,” an illustrated slide lecture that explores the intimate connection between the papacy, the Counter-Reformation, and the development of Baroque art and architecture. Highlights include the Jesuit contribution at the Chiesa del Gesu and Sant’Ignazio, Bernini’s many projects for the popes, and Caravaggio’s tenebrism.  Father Tom, as those of you who attended his presentation last year know, is always informative and entertaining.  We are very pleased that he's back with us again this year.

As usual, the evening will begin with food and conversation at 6:30.  Please bring an antipasto, dolce or vino to share.  The presentation will start at 7:30.
As well any member interested in being on the Board, either as an officer or a consigliere, will have an opportunity there to talk to a member of the Nominating Committee for the Annual General Meeting (AGM).  Pat Hoffman and Anita Bingaman of the 2018 Nominating Committee will be available if you want to catch them there at that time. They can tell you the positions that are open, outline the basic duties and responsibilities and explain the nomination and election process.  You can also contact them anytime before the AGM at or  
Please consider whether you would like to support Dante by volunteering your time and experience as a Board member.
