Buon Natale:
Unexpected Stories Behind Holiday Traditions

Get in the holiday spirit with Carla Gambescia, author of La Dolce Vita University, to discover the surprising stories behind some of our most cherished holiday traditions. Carla's presentation will explore how both the pagan and Christian traditions magically coalesced into the Christmas holiday traditions we celebrate today, as well as a few less familiar uniquely Italian customs around the celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany and wearing red underwear on New Year's Eve! 

Intrigued? Join us and let's celebrate Natale and Capodanno together. Following Carla's, presentation there will be a brief Q&A session. Registration fee: $25


Carla Gambescia is the author of La Dolce Vita University: An Unconventional Guide to Italian Culture from A to Z, Silver Prize winner of "Best Travel Book of the Year" awarded by the North American Travel Journalists Association. A regular lecturer on topics of Italian cultural interest, Carla has written about and toured every region of Italy on foot or by bicycle and curates the photoblog Postcards from the Boot. Carla conceived and co-led the Giro del Gelato bicycle tour winner of OUTSIDE Magazine's "Best Trip in Western Europe," and, for a decade, owned and operated Via Vanti! Restaurant & Gelateria in Mount Kisco, NY.
