Who's Here Now
A Letter from the Director
Autumn has arrived at Civitella. Each morning brings banks of thick low fog to the edges of the property where vines are turning red and leaves are falling from the trees. The last of our Group 4 presentations will occur early next week and Halloween is upon us. Fellows will celebrate with a masked 'graduation' lunch and good bye party in the Castle dining room.
By early November we will be settling the Castle in for its long winter nap, covering furniture, treating the beams, making repairs, keeping up with maintenance. Harts will come soon to reclaim the lawn in front of the Castle as it is a favorite spot to soak up the sun.
Our fall Board meeting just took place in New York, followed by a dinner with our Advisory Council, staff, and Board Directors. Animated conversations dealt with the question, 'What potential do you see for Civitella in the future?' This is a timely question as we have now awarded over 500 Fellowships from over 75 nations, and are poised for our twentieth anniversary next year in 2014.
With all best wishes for this season,
Civitella Ranieri Foundation, Inc.
