Casa Lally, 132 E. 65th Street
Casa Lally is home to Hunter College's Italian language institute, Parliamo Italiano. Several years of renovation work to its interior and exterior concluded in late spring of 2014. 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. The College recently contracted with an architect who has begun to design additional features for this space.
