Have you ever wanted to learn how to play Bocce or make a cannoli? On Saturday, Oct. 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Sons of Italy will co-sponsor a day of Italian Heritage with the HWS Offices of Global Education, Intercultural Affairs and the Provost. The day will include Bocce lessons followed by a tournament, Italian card games, face painting, canolli making workshop, and Italian music. No experience is necessary and everyone is welcome and encouraged to play.
Assistant Professor of Italian Sebastiano Lucci hopes the event brings together HWS faculty, staff, and students, with members of the Geneva community. “What better way of bringing everyone together than with a fun, competitive game like bocce? It’s also an opportunity for people to learn about traditional Italian games, which will be presented by HWS students.”
Lunch and transportation to the Sons of Italy at 31 Prospect Ave. will be provided. Starting at 10:30 a.m., vans will leave from Intercultural Affairs.
“Hopefully this will be the beginning of a HWS and Son’s of Italy tradition,” Lucci says.
