May 2019 English Meeting Reminder

Ciao a  tutti -



at St. Patrick's Church - Social Hall, 815 E Edgar Street, Seattle

Our speaker will be Rob Prufer, a regular speaker at our Dante meetings.   His topic this time is: "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 has inspired students with his love for history, art, and ancient languages as a teacher at Bellevue’s Newport High School since 1995, particularly in his Advanced Placement Art History course.  This passion led him to create the popular Loggia Lecture Series at the Bellevue Arts Museum.  In his spare time, Rob can be found cycling, studying Italian, and traveling with his wife, Lesley.

As usual our Pre-Dante Pasta Dinner will be ready at 6:30 and the program will start at 7:30.  Please feel free to bring an antipasto, dolce, or vino to share. The cost of the dinner is $8 per person or $15 per couple.
