    Whether sailing the islands, trekking the Dolomites, exploring art cities, or enjoying small villages, we are sure to savor our fondest Italian travel memories, discover new secret destinations, and plan our next trip!

In class, we’ll explore book exercises and practice conversation skills focusing on travel to our chosen destination.

In her free time, she dances hula with Halau Kaulakahi, loves the ocean, and enjoys traveling by boat around small islands or by foot on high mountains.

    Italy and Hawaii share a similar pace of living, sense of community, stunning landscapes of mountains and seas, and a strong connection to water. This journey explores our home away from home through a series of underwater photographs celebrating the thriving ocean and the life within it. Photographer Chiara Salomoni will share her journey through the depths, with a focus on the incredible squalo (manō) — or shark—the heartbeat of this presentation. She will share how she coexists with sharks as an underwater photographer, learning when to photograph, when to dive, and when to wait for what is about to happen. Sharks communicate through their eyes—they will let you know their boundaries, while challenging you to both confront and expand your own. Beyond fear, beauty awaits. Dive in.

    Presenter: Photographer Chiara Salomoni was born in Italy and now lives in Haleiwa. She has dedicated her life to art and nature. After studying fine arts in Milan (Italy) and photography in Santa Barbara (California), she specialized in underwater megafauna, portraits, and fashion. After years working in the world of scuba diving, she is now dedicating herself to the world of freediving and works mainly with sharks in Hawaiian waters. She is published internationally on: Nat Geo Blog, Huffington Post, Fstoppers, Il Giorno, Annex Magazine, Sydney Herald. For a taste of her work, visit her website.

    Bring: Chiara will have some photographs for purchase—she accepts cash or Venmo, if interested.

    Join our Caffe' Letterario for a discussion of another Italian favorite: Tiziano Terzani's memoirs, "A Fortune-Teller Told Me: Earthbound Travels in the Far East."

    “An utterly charming and engaging travel book that offers vivid portraits of unusual corners of Asia, told by a skilled raconteur whose eyes were open wide.” — Los Angeles Times Book Review

    Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for an entire year, Tiziano Terzani—a vastly experienced Asia correspondent—took what he called “the first step into an unknown world. . . . It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn.”

    Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers, sorcerers, and shamans and received much advice—some wise, some otherwise—about his future. With time to think, he learned to understand, respect, and fear for older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. He rediscovered a place he had been reporting on for decades. And reinvigorated himself in the process.

    Author: Born in Florence, Tiziano Terzani studied law at the prestigious Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa. After graduating, he worked for Olivetti and a business trip to Japan changed his life. He moved to New York to study at Columbia University at the School of International and Public Affairs, with a specialization on Chinese language and culture. He later became a prominent journalist and writer who covered Asia for Italian and German newspapers between the 1970s and the early 2000s.

    This Spring Course is "Conversazione con Libro di Ricette" (conversation with a cookbook). Sharpen your conversation skills and your reading comprehension with readings from a cookbook, restaurant menu, and activities. Each recipe will inspire a lively discussion, bring up new vocabulary words, and touch on grammatical issues. Each week prior to class, you will review assigned sections and exercises from the textbook Prego!, and prepare some talking points on a selected Italian recipe. We will use the class time to clarify questions, do a couple of exercises and especially read and speak together using the recipe and cultural contents.

    INSTRUCTOR, Level 1 & 2: Iolanda Marinelli grew up in Italy where she received her Laurea Magistrale (M.A.) in Foreign Languages and Literatures from the University of Naples “L’Orientale”, and a Teaching Certification in English Secondary Education from Italy Department of Education.

She continued to teach Italian and Spanish for the After School Malama Program at Waimanalo Elementary and Intermediate School, and Spanish at Kailua Elementary School. Iolanda also served three terms on the Board of Directors of the Hawai’i Association of Language Teachers as Italian Representative. In 2023 she left the Hawai'i Department of Education and started a new job in Contracts with the Naval Base, Pacific Command. She brings her experience working with children and adds fun to the Italian classes.

    Join Iolanda Marinelli for a demonstration on limoncello making, followed by limoncello tasting and Italian lemon delicacies.

    Limoncello is a popular liqueur made with the peel of citrus fruits from the Campania region, traditionally lemons from the Amalfi Coast: Sfusato Amalfitano or Ovale di Sorrento. The history of limoncello is steeped in many legends and its invention is disputed by Sorrento, Amalfi, and Capri. The entrepreneur Massimo Canale was the first to register the "Limoncello" trademark in 1988 in Capri, claiming that the liqueur originated from his grandmother's recipe. Initially a homemade preparation, limoncello has gained great popularity and today is commercially produced on a large scale. So much so that it has become a traditional festive gift for Christmas and Easter, perhaps accompanied by colorful Easter cookies. The recipe for limoncello is simple, but it must be followed closely, and in just over a couple of months this fragrant yellow liqueur with a strong flavor can be enjoyed, most often as a digestive drink, but also to flavor desserts or fruit salads.

    Bring: A dish to share for our potluck and wine if you drink.

    Address: Event will take place aa private home in Honolulu. Registered guests will receive an email with address and directions prior to the event.

    Parking: Abundant free parking in the vicinity.

    Join our Caffe' Letterario for a discussion of award winning Dacia Maraini's latest novel “Chiara di Assisi: Elogio della disobbedienza” (In Praise of Disobedience: Clare of Assisi). You can read the Italian original edition or the English translation by Jane Tylus.

    Novel: An author receives a mysterious e-mail begging her to tell the story of Clare of Assisi, the thirteenth-century Italian saint. At first annoyed by the request, the author begins to research Saint Clare and becomes captivated by her life. We too are transported into the strange and beautiful world of medieval Italy, witnessing the daily rituals of convent life. At the center of that life is Saint Clare, a subversive and compelling figure full of contradictions: a physically disabled woman who travels widely in her imagination, someone unforgivingly harsh to herself yet infinitely generous to the women she supervises, a practitioner of self-abnegation who nevertheless knows her own worth. A visionary who liberated herself from the chains of materialism and patriarchy, Saint Clare here becomes an inspirational figure for a new generation of readers. 

    Author: Dacia Maraini is one of Italy’s most prominent contemporary authors. Her books have been translated into twenty-two languages and she has won the most prestigious Italian literature awards: the Formentor Prize for L'età del malessere (1963); the Premio Fregene for Isolina (1985); the Premio Campiello and Book of the Year Award for La lunga vita di Marianna Ucrìa (1990); and the Premio Strega for Buio (1999). In 2013, the documentary I Was Born Travelling about her life portrayed the story of her imprisonment in a concentration camp in Japan, to the legendary journeys around the world with her partner Alberto Moravia, her close friends Pier Paolo Pasolini and opera singer Maria Callas.
