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.
ITALICS closes its 2015 season with story time: Tomie dePaola reads from his classic tale, “Strega Nona” – beloved by children and adults alike, celebrating its 40th Anniversary. Tomie, as the legendary author is known to fans, chats with Lucia Grillo at BAM – Brooklyn Academy of Music. Italian documentarian and critic, founder of Roma Cinema Fest, Mario Sesti talks to Lucia Grillo about the representation of women and exposé of misogyny in Pietrangeli’s films. ITALICS continues its “investigation” of the “new Italian Americans” in an interview with Alessandro Parrello: actor, producer, and founder of West 46th Magazine.

TILCA

A refereed online publication, Teaching Italian Language and Culture Annual (TILCA) is dedicated to promoting a scholarly exchange among teachers and researchers of Italian language and culture as an L2. TILCA thus welcomes submissions of essays that deal with empirical and theoretical issues concerning language teaching and learning. TILCA also reviews relevant scholarly books, textbooks, audio-visual materials, and software. The editorial board welcomes unsolicited reviews, and asks that the potential reviewer first contact the review editor.
   TILCA welcomes all submissions in either English or Italian. It expects that all submissions have not been published previously and are not simultaneously under consideration elsewhere.
