Casa Lally: Parliamo Italiano
Casa Lally, a former townhouse located on East 65th Street, is home to Hunter College's Italian language institute, Parliamo Italiano. Much renovation has occurred during the last several years, and additional renovations that are part of another major construction phase kicked off in the summer of 2015. Parliamo's well-regarded Italian language courses resumed in this space in the fall semester of 2014 after being held for several semesters at Hunter's main campus. All construction and renovation is expected to be completed by the end of November 2015.
