We are very excited about our 2018 End of year Party.
DAS will crown this year with a celebration which includes the “Dante Distinctive Citizen Award” ceremony to honor admirable members of the community that with effort and passion strive to promote the Italian culture and language in our area. We are pleased to announce that for 2018 the recipient is Maria Harris.
776 Italian children under the age of 14 were deported to Auschwitz. Only 25 survived the gas chambers. Luigi Ferri was one of them.
As the child of mixed marriage he could have avoided deportation, but he refused to abandon his beloved Jewish grandmother when she was arrested in June 1944 in Trieste.
Enjoy the local premiere of 12 recent Italian films plus 2 short film programs shown in Italian language with English subtitles at 6 locations. In
collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts, Wayne State University, Michigan State University and the Sun Theatre. Presented under the
auspices of the Consulate of Italy in Detroit. FREE admission.
