Italian American Lecture Series: An Integration into Italy with Artist William Papaleo

New York born artist, William Papaleo has spent the last 35 years living and painting the beauty of Naples and Southern Italy and given attention to the new wave of immigrants and their voyage and integration into Italian society. His talk focuses on Naples and the Amalfi Coast-the Horizons and the Colors of Identity. He will present his paintings and his personal history from his father Joseph Papaleo's writing of the Italian American experience to the development of his own paintings and his interviews with the new immigrants coming to Italy. Southern Italy's complexity as a land of myth, landscape, struggle and transformation will be explored through his painting.

Presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center

Hofstra University gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Long Island Regional Chapter of the Italian American Studies Association and the Association of Italian American Educator, Cav. Josephine Maietta, president.
