In celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Raffaello's passing, please join us for a FILM and PANEL CONVERSATION with Drs. Fabrizio Medosi and Nancy Miwa, who will engage in Q&As about Raffaello's contributions to the arts and humanity.
Fabrizo Medosi, Architect
Fabrizio was born last millennium in the belfry of Cremona, Italy. When he was 18 years old, he moved to Rome to pursue his studies in the black arts and at 21, disguised as a raven, flew to New York City to study Architecture at Columbia University, where he met a young sorceress from Hawaii. After marrying her, in 1983, with a little sorceress’ apprentice on her way, the three of them flew a broomstick to Honolulu where he has been bewitched ever since. Presently he is president of Pacific Atelier International practicing the black magic of Architecture. In 1990, Fabrizio was a founding member of the FOISH and years later (he can’t quite remember exactly when) one of its presidents when he survived being burned at the stake.
Nancy Miwa, Docent
After spending several years in the nonprofit arena, Dr. Miwa returned to graduate school to study the history, theology, iconography, and literature of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. She moved to Honolulu five years ago and immediately joined the Honolulu Museum of Art as a docent and instructs other docents on the museum’s small but important collection of medieval and Renaissance masterpieces. Her travels have taken her all over the world, but she particularly enjoys her visits “home” to Italy.
