You might want to enroll in a once-in-a-lifetime experience! For over a decade now, St Stephen's has been running its own Arts & Humanities program. Chair of the English Department Leon Maggio, who has been in charge of the program since 2017, will begin welcoming students for the 2018 summer session on July 22nd. Classes and activities will run through to August 4th.  
 
Open to students ages 13 to 18, the two-week Arts & Humanities summer program offers courses taught by the distinguished faculty of St. Stephen's School, along with exceptional local teachers.
 
Students may enroll in a language course (Italian or Latin), a core course (focusing on ancient Rome or Renaissance Art) and an elective course (course choices include Creative Writing and 2D/3D Studio Art). There are breaks between classes, and a study hall period in the afternoons. The school's library and computer labs are open and available to students throughout the day.  Also included is an evening Cultural Program with events held on-site around the city of Rome, such as the opera and other musical and theatrical performances where the backdrop is Rome itself, outings to important landmarks in the city opened for special evening visits, and excursions to different neighborhood and ice cream shops (gelaterie) in Rome.

Roadmap to Hell Book Presentation by Barbie Nadeau, Thursday, March 22 at 6:00pm

Join us for a special book presentation by journalist and author Barbie Nadeau on

March 22nd at 6:00 pm

in the St Stephen's School Cultural Center.

Barbie Nadeau will talk about her journey in writing her latest book

ROADMAP TO HELL: SEX, DRUGS AND GUNS ON THE MAFIA COAST

 

OneWorld Publications who published the book describes its contents as follows:

"From sex slaves to drug mules, The Daily Beast's Rome Bureau Chief uncovers a terrifying and intricate web of criminal activity right on Europe's doorstep.

Caught between Camorra gunrunners selling to ISIS and Nigerian drug gangs along Italy's picturesque coast, each year thousands of refugees and migrants are lured into their criminal underworld, forced to become sex slaves, drug mules or weapon smugglers. In this powerful exposé, investigative journalist Barbie Latza Nadeau follows the weapons trail, meets the Nigerian hair braiders trafficked and trapped by black magic, the brave nuns who try to save them and the Italian police who turn a blind eye as the most urgent issues facing Europe play out in broad daylight."

 

About the Author

Barbie Latza Nadeau is an American journalist in Rome, working for Newsweek, The Daily Beast and CNN. For more than two decades she has covered crime in Europe, Italian politics, the Vatican, the refugee crisis and women's issues. Her previous book about the murder trials of Amanda Knox, Angel Face (2010), was adapted for film (The Face of an Angel, 2015), starring Kate Beckinsale as a journalist based on Barbie herself.
