In 2005, the French Heritage Language Program launched its first French class at Manhattan International High School, with one ambition in mind: to help Francophone immigrants continue learning their language and make the best of their French in the United States. 10 years later, the program has grown to serve 10 public schools and 1 community center in New York City, and expanded its outreach to 11 other schools and community centers in Florida, Maine and Massachusetts. More than 4,000 students have already benefitted from our support from elementary to high school levels!

I cannot imagine better space than the Museo Etnografico ” C’era una volta” of Alessandria, Italy to host this serie. This museum carries a true spirit of the everyday human and family life, escaping any sense of industrialization , simple yet ingenoiuos objects made by the people for the people…

Windows to the Past

The ethnographic museum “Once upon a Time”, set up in the handsome spaces of the restored Gambarina in Alessandria, aims at keeping alive the specificity aquired in many years of activity developed in the homonymous museum in Valle San Bartolomeo [ a near by village]: on one side to keep and hand on customs and traditions of the folk, on the other side to organise temporary exhibitions and varrious initiatives to increase public opinion’s interest in this vast and little known cultural richness. [ Excerpt from the introduction of the Ethnolographic Museum.]

Incontro > Comunicare con il segno > Palazzo Gozzani Treville

Casale Monferrato, sabato 30 Maggio,2015, alle ore 17,15 è rivolto più  rasversalmente alla popolazione ed è organizzato in sinergia con “Le Cafè pour parler”, presso il Palazzo Gozzani Treville. L’argomento della conversazione è: “comunicare con il segno”.


Meeting with artists and patrons of the arts. The topic of conversation is “Communicating With the Sign.” I presents my original linoleum cuts as well as the news papers tare sheets’ my work has been published on. Palazzo Gozzani Treville, Casale Monferrato, Italy, Saturday May 30 ,2015,  5:15 pm.


My talk presented samples of the more ‘traumatic’ part of my work , commissionned by the newspapers such as the New York Times and Harper’s Magazine…, relating to the most destructive aspect of our human activities. In contrast, the overall Palazzio concept remains the opposit of this. Its surprising elaborate craftsmanship , [regardless personal taste], it is absolutely undeniable . This fact alone, testimony of the astonishing richness, complexity and refinment of the Italian culture,  invits us to reflect on our urgent need to balance our behavior for the surch of a different way of living, of relating to one an other and the environment. The “ARTS” , if its definition could lead us toward balancing our lives, could invite us to learn how to listen and to observe. And even so it may not be the absolut answer, at this age of ‘speed’,  it certainly will NOT hurt us!

La scelta di invitare a Casale Raymond Verdaguer è dettata dall’attualità degli eventi che hanno portato al centro della cronaca internazionale le “vignette”. Si ritiene interessante esaminare questa professione, strettamente legata alla comunicazione, attraverso il confronto diretto con un grande professionista del settore, un vignettista-incisore . La professionalità di Verdaguer si è espressa tramite i più noti giornali del Mondo dal New York Times, a “Le Monde”, International Herald Tribune, Liberation, El Mundo, Le Magazine Littéraire ecc. e, attraverso numerose pubblicazioni.
