In Memory of Pina Pasquantonio

Make a gift in memory of the life and work of Pina Pasquantonio, assistant director of operations for the Academy for thirty years. Pina was a certified sommelier and one of her passions was the selection of wines for the Academy community, introducing Americans to new tastes and regions. The care and dedication Pina took selecting wines was but a small part of her care and dedication to the Academy community.



The Academy presents a full schedule of public events each year in Rome, including concerts, conferences, exhibitions, lectures, and readings. These events attract an international audience as well as attention in the Italian and American press. The Academy also organizes special presentations at various venues in the United States.
