Dr. Chomel is the author of a book on D'Annunzio's theater and numerous articles on Italian literature, theater, and cinema.


Italia: Civilta e Cultura is an extremely useful and versatile tool for our intermediate and advance students of Italian. The manuscript offers a sound, comprehensive overview of Italy's culture, wonderfully capturing its geography, history, art, music, literature and cinema. It is a valuable learning tool capable of enriching the experience of both students and teachers of Italian. We are delighted to adopt it at the Institute. -- Francesca Valente, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute of Los Angeles Italia: Civilta e Cultura provides a fine supplement to any Italian language and culture course, as it covers Italian geography, history, literature, art, cinema, and culture in an appropriate and succinct manner. It should become very popular among North American Italian language instructors. -- Peter Bondanella, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature, Film Studies, and Italian; Indiana University This book also presents the added advantage of introducing the student to a concise and coherent overview of the most important aspects of Italian culture and civilization while easily lending itself to further expansion, classroom discussion and research. Insofar as the book meets the stated pedagogical objectives, I am fully convinced that it will have an important impact in our profession and that will be widely welcomed in our schools and colleges. -- Roberto Severino, Ph.D., Chair of the Italian Department and professor emeritus, Georgetown University
