Talk: Women in the Italian Resistance during World War II
June 27, 2017 –
Join us for a talk by Auburn native Dr. Jomarie Alano, who has spent much of her academic career chronicling the life and work of Ada Gobetti, an Italian Resistance activist.
Dr. Alano recently translated, edited, and published Gobetti's work as "Partisan Diary: A Woman's Life in the Italian Resistance" through Oxford University Press.
Dr. Alano is a Visiting Scholar at Cornell University's Institute for European Studies. In 2004 she published "Patron Saints and Paesani: Italian Immigrants in Auburn, New York 1900-1940" in the journal "Italian Americana." Partisan Diary and Patron Saints and Paesani are available at Seymour Library.
The museum will remain open until 5:45 pm for guests to view Becoming American: the Italian Immigrant in Cayuga County before the talk.
Admission is $5 Museum members, $7 Non-members.
