October is Italian Heritage Month

Italy-and-Italian-flag-web-300x215.jpgMark your calendars now. October 1 through November 17, 2017 is your opportunity to experience the best of Italian-American culture close to home at Ciao Philadelphia 2017.

Philadelphia is home to one of the largest, most accomplished enclaves of Italian-Americans in the entire United States. I’ve given you a glimpse of the richness of my Italian-American heritage in Love & Loyalty, but the words on the page can’t quite capture the beautiful sights, the glorious sounds, the exquisite tastes, the delicious smells, and the heart that makes a home Italian. During Italian Cultural Month, you can experience some of these for yourself in art, education, music, and other shared community gatherings.

Ciao Philadelphia 2017 events include

  • Italian art exhibits at Penn Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Union League of Philadelphia, Woodmere Art Museum
  • Live music and concerts
  • A Ferrari innovation demo day
  • Exhibits, presentations, and workshops
  • A walking tour of the Italian and Jewish quarters of South Philly
  • A Columbus Day communion breakfast

Check their brochure for a complete list of events and October discounts to the Franklin Institute and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
