This seminar will guide you through Italy's rich history, beautiful arts, unique culture and traditional lifestyle, while providing you with everything you need to know to organize the trip of your dreams. You will be introduced to insights and recommendations that are not found on-line or in a standard travel guide. By the end of the seminar, you will not only possess the knowledge needed to explore Italy with confidence, but you will also enhance your cultural awareness of one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Join Milan native Dr. Lorenzo Dellagiovanna on Thursday, March 9 at 7 p.m., as he shares his original stories and suggestions to help you understand the extraordinary charm of the Italian culture. Everyone in the audience will receive a free copy of the e-book The Essential Guide for Traveling to Italy and have access to four free Italian language lessons with T&L Global, a premier language center located in Pittsburgh, PA.
