ITALICS Jan. 27, 2016: Carl Safina / Luca Chiara Accessories / NOIAW



This episode of ITALICS focuses on the environment. Lucia Grillo goes to the Safina Center at Stony Brook and talks with Doctor Carl Safina about his new book, “Beyond Words,” which gives new perspective on how we view animals. Designer Martin Salerno, founder of the chic – and high-tech – Luca Chiara, joins us in our studio to talk about what inspired his vegan leather accessories line. At the Italianate townhouse where the Columbus Citizens Foundation is housed, NOIAW celebrates three Wise Women: Donna Corrado, Commissioner of the NYC Department of Aging; Carin Guarasci, Professor of Education & Director of New Educators at Wagner College; and Sue Matthews of the non-profit, Conquering Kidz Cancer.
