The Westchester Italian Cultural Center Presents
MONA LISA: A LIFE DISCOVERED by Dianne Hales
Friday, September 12, 2014 at 6:30pm
Mona Lisa: A Life Discovered blends biography, history, and memoir to introduce Mona (Madame) Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo; daughter of Florence, woman of the Renaissance, wife, mother, muse, and “noble spirit.” Join best-selling author Dianne Hales as she walks the squalid street where Lisa was born, meets her descendants, traces her colorful family history, explores her neighborhoods, recreates her daily rituals, and captures the tumult and pageantry of Florence during the greatest artistic outpouring the world has ever seen.
Presented by Dianne Hales, prize-winning, widely published journalist, and author of La Bella Lingua: My Love Affair with Italian, the World’s Most Enchanting Language. Book Signing and reception with the author will conclude the evening.
Must register in advance and prepay.
Members $20, Non-Members $25
