Franco Mormando STL ’94, associate professor of Italian Studies at Boston College, gave a lecture at San Francisco’s Istituto Italiano di Cultura on the Roman Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini and his new biography of Bernini in February. His lecture is in conjunction with the Legion of Honor Museum of Fine Art’s display of Bernini’s wonderful statue of "Medusa," on loan from the Capitoline Museum of Rome (This is the first time the statue has ever left Italy, so it is a real coup for San Francisco).
