October 12, 2021 
7- 8pm (Florence time)

We hope you'll join us for Fundraising Extravaganza Event 5, a lecture by Jason Houston on the influence of Dante 700 years after his death. The event is "hybrid": online via Zoom, or in-person in Florence (near piazza Santa Croce).

You can make a donation here: https://www.democratsabroad.org/gaf_daitaly/help_us_help_you
Season ticket holders are welcome to attend each event either online or in-person.  If you have not yet made a donation for a season ticket, we have a special offer: €30  for the next four events instead of €75

Donations for individual events are still €25 for each in-person event (this includes a drink & snacks) or €15 for each online event.
