    Buon giorno! Join us for another fun class of this popular series.

    On Saturday, March 11, from 9:30 to 11:00 AM, Italian native Elisabetta Re will lead a small group in a casual conversation format. Participants will enjoy traditional Italian coffee, Italian breakfast staples – pane, burro e marmellata – along with some dolcetti.

    This is intended to be a very informal class aimed at Italian students of all proficiency levels. This class will offer the opportunity to practice the Italian phrases you know, learn new ones and improve your comprehension skills – all in a laid back atmosphere.

    This month’s conversation theme:  the International Women's Day celebrated on March 8th every year. Did you know that in Italy, to celebrate the day, men give yellow mimosas to women?

    The ICC is pleased to announce a special presentation and piano performance to be held on Wednesday, March 29th, at 6:30 p.m. and hosted by the School of Music of the University of Minnesota. Maria Mannone, will present Music and Mathematics: an Italian Perspective".

    What is the connection between art and science? These apparently opposite fields of the human knowledge have an incredible story of interactions and mutual influences. Science can inspire artistic production, and answers some questions while opening new ones. Art gives Science new food for thought, and helps understanding abstract concepts in an intuitive way.  As in a progressive zoom, we start from general considerations, then we address on math, physics, and music, to focus on the Italian contribution to these fields across the centuries. A short gallery of important contributions is completed by musical “live” examples. A short piano recital follows the presentation, including a section with improvised piano music based on the suggestions of the public, as an interactive exchange between public and performance.

    The event is organized by the Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis/Saint Paul, and hosted by the University of Minnesota.


    Maria Mannone (Palermo, 1985) earned Masters in Theoretical Physics, Orchestral Conducting, Composition, and Piano in her native Italy; in France, the Master 2 ATIAM at IRCAM-UPMC Paris VI Sorbonne. She’s currently Ph.D. candidate in Composition at the University of Minnesota, where she developed an interdisciplinary research, in collaboration with the Fine Institute of Theoretical Physics. She participated in international conferences about math and music as invited speaker, and recently to the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta, Georgia. She’s author and co-author of books and articles about the field, that also involve relations between music and visual arts, her strong passion. Her musical compositions have been performed by the Orchestra Sinfonica Siciliana, and during Festival delle Orestiadi di Gibellina, and the Arts Quarter Festival at the U of M. She’s also active as performer and improviser.
