Description

Co.As.It. and Societa' Isole Eolie invite you to

Aeolian Magic Lantern Slide Presentation

Join us for a very special evening filled with the sights, sounds and flavours of the Aeolian Islands.

A unique treasure from the Co.As.It. Italian Historical Society Collection, the Aeolian Islands Magic Lantern Slides from the early 1900s-1930s provide an atmospheric backdrop to this unforgettable event.

Over 70 beautifully coloured slides explore the Aeolian Islands from every vantage point, providing spectacular views of the Islands and a rare glimpse into the daily life of the Aeolian people at the time.

The highlight of the evening will be a talk by Cristina Neri, graphic designer, author and well known member of the Società Isole Eolie. Cristina is passionate in learning about and sharing all aspects of the history of the Aeolian Islands.

Guests will have the unique opportunity to help identify some of the slides, which will add greatly to their significance in promoting the long and memorable history of the Aeolian Islands.

All this, the chance to enjoy an “aperitivo Eoliano” and vibrant music will make this a night to remember.
