JANUARY 2020 CULTURAL PROGRAM
The Strange Career of Dueling in Italy,
Presented by Prof. Stephen C. Hughes on Friday, January 10, 7:30 p.m., Mount Carmel Parish Hall, 3549 Navajo Street, Denver.
We’ve all seen the scene in the movies – two gentlemen stand back to back holding their weapons, count out the appropriate number of paces, turn and face each other and determine who wins the duel. Did you ever think dueling was a career practiced by Italy’s elite?
Join us at our January cultural meeting to learn more.

Why You Should Read Dante
You haven’t read Dante yet? Then you should definitely do it right now. Maybe you are scared of a work entirely written in verses, a work originating from a time far, far away that seems to have no connection to our world today. But that’s not true – well, of course it is written in verses.
