Lecturing at MIT on March 11, 2011!
Plans have just been finalized for me to lecture at Boston’s MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Needless to say I am very honored to be asked and excited at the idea of lecturing at such a prestigious venue. My lecture will be “The Italians – HANDS ON!”.

The closest subway stop is a 10-minute walk to Kendall Square (on Main Street near the intersection of Broadway). The stop is called Kendall/MIT and it is on the Red Line. The MIT Campus Map is fully searchable, and can be found at this location: http://whereis.mit.edu/
For those who intend to drive, parking can be difficult around MIT, with few paid parking lots. The best option, if possible, is to drive to an MBTA station parking, and take public transportation from those points. Please look at the MBTA website (http://www.mbta.com) to see what parking options are available. The fees range from roughly $4-8 per day and usually are cash-only, paid upon exiting. Some lots connect to the subway system, some to commuter rail, but this information is available at the MBTA website. It also includes information about the fares for each mode of transportation.
