ITALIAN NIGHT this past Saturday evening was once again a gorgeous and successful event.

Because of intermittent and unpredictable monsoon rains, dinner was served in the Crafts III building, on all three levels, the cafe, the bakery and the visitors center, a new challenge for us, but it worked out very well.

This years performance was titled “The [Golden] Frame and the Mask”, as mentioned in the program ‘at a certain point, the frame and mask are the same idea’.

Jeff Stein narrated with quotations by Luigi Pirandello, Dante Alighieri and Paolo Soleri.

This was a terrific event, impossible to convey in just a few photos. If you missed it this year be sure to look for it in the coming years.
