The Luigi and Anita Traverso Italian Studies Endowment at New Paltz presents “Manzoni’s Fallen Woman: The Actual Nun of Monza and I Promessi Sposi,” at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 20, in the Coykendall Science Building Auditorium. The presentation, given by Anthony Cinquemani (English, Emeritus), will look at the publication of the “Vita e Processo di Suor Virginia Maria de Leyva, Monaca di Monza,” which reveals, more amply than Manzoni’s famous novel, the sordid circumstances of the adultery and involvement in crime of the Signora.
