A LITERARY CELEBRATION OF ROME'S PIAZZA NAVONA

Postcard auction, cocktails / aperitivos, music, and dancing inspired by a night in Italy, and featuring writer and filmmaker ANTONIO MONDA in conversation with LARISSA MACFARQUHAR

[Monda] does seem custom-built for the part of the Italian intellectual, erudite yet effusive, bounding from one topic to the next: the short stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer, the religious themes coiled inside the subversive films of Pier Paolo Pasolini, the curious parallels between Italian and Jewish-American literature, each founded on "the unique relationship with religion, with culture, with aristocracy."
