New York English Academy is proud to announce its brand new ‘Einstein Culture Club’, where we will enjoy various cultural activities together – all in English!

Following the huge success of our sold-out ‘Einstein in Tuscany’ event at Virgo last June, we have decided to expand this program into weekly English cultural events, including film screenings, poetry readings, lectures and discussions, aperitivos, music, etc.

Most events will take place on Fridays at New York English Academy, but when more space is required we will partner with other cultural institutions in the region – Palazzo Blu, SMS Biblio, Teatro del Giglio, Teatro Lux, etc.  – with whom we have been collaborating happily for the past several years.

Following the talks and concerts we will have an ‘English Aperitivo’ during which we can exchange perspectives.

The perfect opportunity for local English learners to practice listening and speaking, and the only opportunity in Pisa for foreigners to meet English-speaking locals as well as fellow travelers and expats.

Silvia Panichi Book Presentation


(Donzelli 2018)

followed by our our annual


NYEA is honored to welcome art-historian and writer, Silvia Panichi, who will present her new book, ROMA ANTICA E LA NUOVA AMERICA (Donzelli, 2018), which explores the influence of Ancient Roman culture on the early formation of the U.S.

The presentation will be in English and will be followed by an open discussion, also in English.

Following the presentation we will have a Christmas ‘Brindisi’ (toast) with some light refreshments.

This event is free of charge – as a Christmas gift from us to you – but reservations are absolutely necessary! Please reserve by email through


PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to combat some of the comercialization of Christmas, we will not be selling the book at this event; but if you purchase the book elsewhere and bring it with you, we are sure Ms. Panichi will be happy to sign it.

Facebook event HERE!

Following the book presentation, we will have an open Christmas potluck party – also free of charge – where all guests are invited to bring something to eat and drink and enjoy some nice company, Christmas songs and plenty of English conversation before we close for our holiday break.


Hope to see you there!!!

A special talk by Prof. Theo Van Boxel 

‘Escher and Graphic Design’

“As Escher once said: ‘If you want to express something impossible, you must keep to certain rules. The element of mystery to which you want to draw attention should be surrounded and veiled by a quite obvious, readily recognizable commonness.’ This true for Escher’s art, but also for all of art.

As a graphic designer it is my job to express the impossible, to transform often abstract concepts into functional communication.

In this lecture I want to explain how Escher’s rules and techniques are present in modern graphic design.
I will illustrate how calligraphy, typography, logo design, layout and interface design are related to Escher’s world.

A calligrapher creates letters and symbols by balancing between space and negative space, a typographer creates patterns of text, a logo designer synthesizes ideas in easy-to-understand symbols, an interface designer creates a virtual reality – all using exactly the same rules and techniques that Escher did.” – Theo Van Boxel
