Italy’s people have had a primary role in developing the magic and beauty of our world. Il Cenacolo is fortunate that Professor James J. Boitano, PhD, a past President and 2016 Person of the Year, has a passion for history and for exploring all things Italian. As President, he began a series of monthly articles in the Il Cenacolo Bulletin. This growing collection is available below. On these pages he graciously invites us to join him in celebrating the rich beauty of our Italian culture and heritage.
