Join LifeInAbruzzo on Zoom, with special guest Dr James Schwarten, who will discuss the little-known and enchanting history of a community of Scandinavian painters in the remote Abruzzo mountain village of Civita D’Antino.
This community provides a fascinating entry-point through which we consider the social, cultural and economic changes that have played witness to the village’s dramatic transformation over the last century and poses an apparent paradox: in today’s hyper-connected world, how can we explain the ongoing obscurity of villages like Civita D’Antino, when just 100 years ago they were thriving, self-sustaining communities?
The chat will be in English, with plenty of time for questions in English or Italian!
Sunday 24th May, 5.15 pm CET, 4.15 pm BST, 11.15 am EDT
