Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò is home to the Department of Italian Studies at New York University and was founded with the specific intent of spreading Italian culture outside of its national boundaries while being a central academic and cultural resource to the University. Since its inception twenty years ago, Casa Italiana has become a source of pride for the Italian-American community with rich and diverse programming in Italian art, literature, cinema and politics.
The 20th anniversary celebration pays tribute to its founder and inspiration, Baroness Mariuccia Zerilli-Marimò. The evening's performances will feature Maestro Marco Armiliato conducting the NYU Symphony Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera soloists Maija Kovalevska (Boheme, Adventures) and Matthew Polenzani (Die Zauberflöte, La Traviata, Roméo et Juliette), as well as highlights from Light in the Piazza performed by Broadway stars who trained in the NYU Steinhardt School Music Theatre Program.
