AMHS Luncheon Meeting: “Local Italian Artistry-Mosaics, Ceramics & Painting”

  • Jul 27, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Casa Italiana

The Abruzzo Molise Heritage Society (AMHS) invites you to a luncheon  with fabulous Italian food (catered by Fontina Grille) and wine, fun, and fellowship.

There will also be  fascinating presentations by three talented and well-known local Italian artists. 

Antonio Bianchini will talk about how he practices the painstaking mosaic technique developed in Ravenna. 

Roberto Paolinelli will focus on the ceramics technique that is the specialty of his hometown, Castelli, Abruzzo. 

Raffaele De Gregorio, a painter and muralist from Capri, will explain his technique and showcase the poster he designed for the White House in 1992 in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ discovery of America. 

The artists will also discuss the Italian influence on today’s American arts and the importance and pleasure of their art.

We will also hear from Christina Iovino, one of the[masked] AMHS/NIAF scholarship recipients. 

MENU:  Lunch will be catered by Fontina Grille (Bethesda, MD), with a menu of penne alla vodka, meatballs, chicken, salad, bread, dessert, and beverages.

An example of Antonio Bianchini's mosaics is below:
