Leggiamo e parliamo! Are you interested in improving your reading and conversational skills in Italian? 

This class will welcome ICC members who are intermediate speakers of Italian.  Our first meeting will take place on Wednesday April 3 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. This is an 8 week course.

We will read and discuss Italian literature putting into use our reading and speaking skills through the guidance of an ICC Italian native instructor.

We will begin reading "Novecento". The book can be purchased through Amazon using this link:

A trumpet player of a transatlantic ship in the 1930s tells the story of Novecento, an orphan found abandoned on the ship and raised by an engineer and the crew. As an adult, Novecento plays the piano with an extraordinary talent and becomes the pianist of the orchestra, although he never took lessons. The story is about Novecento’s exceptional ability in playing jazz and his life as a man who has never been anywhere else except for the ship.


Pre-requisite: Intermediate 1
