The class will read Contesa per un Maialino Italianissimo a San Salvario by Amara Lakhous. Gino, a “pure Piedmontese” piglet, belongs to Joseph, a Nigerian immigrant living in Turin. Unfortunately, Gino has been filmed running around inside the local mosque. How does the neighbor, Enzo Laganà, a Southern Italian journalist, figure in to this potentially explosive situation? Amara Lakhous, a master commentator on multicultural issues in today’s Italy, makes us laugh at the clash of cultures, once again.

Kathy Freschi has been teaching Italian for over 40 years at UC Santa Barbara, UC Berkeley and College of Marin. In 1987, she founded the Credit Program of Italian at College of Marin, for which she was awarded La Stella d’Italia by the Republic of Italy.
