CULTURAL SEMINARS

Italy, itself, is a living, breathing classroom which encourages continual learning and engagement even by simply walking down the street. Let us take you there, virtually.

The idea of learning is instilled into Italian culture. We offer a variety of seminars that seek to enlighten, engage, and inspire individuals of all ages. These seminars can be utilized to support classroom content, or purely for personal enrichment. Join our local experts as they guide you through the history, the culture, and the streets of Italy.

    I would highly recommend Casa Mia Tours for a virtual tour of Florence, not only was the docent excellent but Carolyn was easy to work with and went out of her way to make the learning experience delightful for the Bradley OLLI members. Wonderful!

    During a time when folks could not travel, Casa Mia brought Italian culture and cuisine into our members’ homes. A live-streamed stroll down Florence’s streets, sipping wine and eating cheese, understanding Sicily’s complex history, and exploring Rome’s Jewish Ghetto were all presented passionately and professionally by trained experts. Casa Mia definitely has carved out this unique niche for on-line learning with older adults.

    Typically, members of the OLLI at American University have the option of taking several tours each year to local museums, monuments, or sites of interest. In 2021, due to the pandemic, that was not possible. Fortunately, Casa Mia reached out to offer us virtual tours of Rome. We signed up for two: The Jewish Community in Rome and Rome Cinema and Food. Both presentations were full of information and fabulous visuals, presented by experts with fun and relaxed styles. Our members enjoyed them thoroughly.
