A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway is the subject of this year's Italy Reads programme
John Cabot University in Rome has selected A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway as the subject of this year's Italy Reads, its annual community-based English language reading and cultural exchange programme.
Each year Italy Reads focuses on classic American novels, helping to raise their profile among an Italian audience.
There are a number of public events included in this year's programme, the first of which is a keynote address by Hemingway expert and JCU professor Silvia Ammary, who examines A Farewell to Arms from an Italian perspective, on 7 October from 18.00-19.30.
The next public lecture is on 21 October, from 18.30-20.00, when JCU professor Vanda Wilcox examines the novel in historical context.
There will also be a production based on A Farewell to Arms by the English Theatre of Rome in November.
All events take place in the Aula Magna Regina at JCU on Via della Lungara 233, in Trastevere.
