Mannella Endowment Lecture Series

About the Alfred F. Mannella and Rose T. Lauria-Mannella Distinguished Speakers Series:

The generosity of Villanova University alumnus Alfred S. Mannella has made it possible for Falvey Memorial Library to sponsor a series of annual events, focusing on scholarship about Italian-American history, culture, and the immigrant experience. The endowed lecture series is named for his parents, Alfred F. and Rose T. Lauria-Mannella. The talks in the Speakers series are held in the Library at the heart of Villanova University's campus.  They are open to the wider community and, as always, are free to everyone, including the general public.

Mr. Mannella’s generous support also provides funds for the Library to acquire books on the Italian-American community and its heritage, a topic close his heart. It is Mr. Mannella’s hope that his gifts will inspire other Villanova alumni to give to the development of Library programming and collections.
