BISHOP HENDRICKEN HIGH SCHOOL Covid-19 Emergency Fund | “Saints, Symbols and Spaghetti” | June 23, 2020
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

This special presentation for Bishop Hendricken High School Covid-19 Emergency Fund will explore the sometimes violent, often bizarre, and always fascinating representations of saints and martyrs in Italian art by artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bronzino, Verrocchio, Caravaggio.
From St. Sebastian’s arrows, St. Lucy’s eyeballs to St. Lawrence’s barbecue grill, Dr. Rocky will provide an engaging, informative and entertaining webinar presentation about saint imagery and symbolism, as well as some surprising traditional Italian recipes that are associated with saints.

The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.

Dr. Ruggiero will begin his presentation promptly at 7:00 PM, but participants are free to join the meeting beforehand.

Bishop Hendricken High School is located in Warwick, Rhode Island and is one of the best high schools in New England. Dr. Ruggiero graduated from Bishop Hendricken in 1991 and feels that he owes the school a tremendous debt of gratitude for the education and values that it provided him. So, please help us give back to Bishop Hendricken in this time of need.
