CCR Remote Lecture & Aperitivo - April 10, 2020

While we all do our best to occupy and amuse ourselves under current restrictions to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak, a creative initiative by our very resourceful guide allows the CCR to propose one or more virtual lectures and bring us together -- at a very safe distance!

The first will be a lecture and virtual aperitivo by video link on the subject of Etruscan civilization, in lieu of the planned outing to Tarquinia, which will be rescheduled when possible. We'll mingle remotely for an aperitif and follow an interactive lecture on the fascinating Etruscans. Three areas will be covered: 1. their general history; 2. older beliefs and more recent theories about them; and 3. Etruscan daily life. The session will include pauses to ask questions, socialize and chill, and the event will last about 90 minutes.

All you need to participate is an internet connection, an email address, and a computer (or smartphone/tablet) with video camera/microphone capabilities. BYO glass of wine and munchies!

For technical reasons, this event is limited to ten participants with preference given to CCR members.

When: Friday, April 10, 2020
Time: 6-7:30 p.m.
Where: at your place!
Cost: €10 for members and €15 for non-members. Advance payment required.
RSVP: ATTN Joe by Tue. Apr. 7, 2020. You are financially responsible for your reservation.
