Harvard Club of Italy and Center for American Studies
New Media, Brain Sciences, Technology and Human Behaviors
After several weeks of meetings and discussions, the Harvard Club of Italy and Centro Studi Americani are happy to announce that the two organizations have reached an agreement upon running and sharing part of their events and activities. Below comes the first opportunity.
Centro Studi Americani is a leading cultural institution playing a pivotal role in American studies. Its library houses a collection of more than 70.000 volumes, part of which dates back to the initial endowment by Harry Nelson Gay ... no wonder Harry was an Harvard scholar ... !
