BYU lecture features culinary tour of Italy Oct. 27

Luca Bonomi, an expert in Italian art and language, will present “Eating Italian Culture: A Culinary Journey through Art, History, Music and Literature” Monday, Oct. 27, at 2 p.m. at the David M. Kennedy Center at Brigham Young University (238 Herald R. Clark Building).

Bonomi is president of Società Dante Alighieri-Comitato di Siena, an institution of Italian language, culture and gastronomy in Siena, Italy. Named for the author of “The Divine Comedy,” the institution was founded in 1889 to preserve and share Italian language and culture with the world. Committees of the institution exist throughout Italy and in major cities on every continent.

In his travels to Japan, South Korea, Norway, Sweden, Slovenia and the United States, Bonomi has addressed many universities and cultural organizations on topics such as Italian language, Italian opera through the centuries and the history of Italian cinema.

Bonomi has also published an Italian grammar text, taught at the Università per la Terza Età and trained opera singers in Italian language and pronunciation.

This lecture will be archived online. For more information on David M. Kennedy Center events, see the calendar online at kennedy.byu.edu. For additional information, contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652.
