Six Wednesdays • Jan 8 – Feb 12 • 10:00am-12:00pm • $200

We will read Una Mutevole Verità by Gianrico Carofiglio, in which Marshal Pietro Fenoglio of the Bari Carabinieri, a northern Italian transplant from Torino, finds himself investigating a murder case that seems straightforward. Except that the main subject, to whom all clues point, doesn’t have the slightest motive for committing the crime! Only the perseverance and the singular investigative style of Fenoglio will reveal the truth of the case which often hides behind the most discounted evidence. Students are asked to read the first twenty pages of the book in advance of the first class meeting.

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.

What Students Are Saying about Alessandra Beraldi

The first class went very well. Our Italian teacher Alessandra is humorous and interesting in class. After a few classes with her, I found out she is good at expressing the complex and difficult process formulas clearly and in a concise language. The lectures are compact and rich, with a large number of examples and exercises, which is very helpful for beginners students to master the classroom content in a short period of time.

She always says, l’italiano è facile, that means, to learn Italian with joy and happiness! I think I got the most passionate learning spirit from her!" - Francesca Metaxas
