This Week's Featured Chicago-Area Cultural Event

 Open Air Rooms: The Architecture of the Mediterranean from Malaparte to the Comptemporary World - Tuesday, November 21st, 6:00 PM
Casa Malaparte is the architectural portrait of an Italian intellectual; it is famous in the world for its stern and unmistakable shape. The writer's home, unlike the villa La Rotonda by Andrea Palladio, did not have the opportunity to spread its echo throughout the world via the thousands of interpretations of the Palladian house. This exhibition will be a story about images and captions that will be completely unpublished. The alternation of covered and open spaces, of tunnels on the sea and dense horizons as mysteries.
Fee: Free; registration requried: https://malaparte.eventbrite.com
Location: Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago, 500 N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60611
