Hey guys... I got an invite from the Italian Cultural Center in Baltimore through the Consul General of Italy...
At the Italian Cultural Center on March 18th, there will be a gathering of car enthusiasts to hear a discussion about Italian cars as well as plans for a driving trip through Italy at the end of May.
If interested, here's what I got...
As an enthusiast of those things Italian, I want to take a moment of your time to introduce you to the Italian Cultural Center, Inc. of Maryland and its new series of Seminars highlighting some of the most beautiful areas of the Regions of Italy.
The Italian Cultural Center, Inc. of Maryland (I.C.C.I.) is the Official Italian Language and Cultural Center in Maryland recognized by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I.C.C.I. promotes the study of Italian art, architecture, music, fashion, artisanship, cooking, history, language and regional traditions of Italy by hosting a wide variety of community events.
Beginning this year, it has launched an Italian Regional Program Series created to introduce Italy enthusiasts to some of the best kept secrets of the old country. The first of these, to be held March 18th, will highlight the regions of Piedmont and Emilia Romagna: The Motor Regions of Italy. Come learn firsthand the origins of Fiat, Ferrari, Maserati, and Ducati. On April 25th the Alpine Wine Regions will be presented along with an explanation of winemaking and a tasting of local wines. Prior to summer on May 20th the direction is turned toward central Italy when a presentation of Tuscan Style will be made highlighting the long history of Italian textiles and high fashion with a taste old Tuscan flavors.
Thanks to a partnership between I.C.C.I. and Europe at Cost (E.A.C.) opportunities will be made available to tour in person the areas discussed in the Regional Program Series. E.A.C. which is a member of the Italian Travel Promotion Council is a Tour Operator officially recognized Italian State Tourist Board. As such E.A.C. is able to offer a unique travel prospective for those who wish to experience Italy as never before.
