Welcome to the Known World Italian Symposium website! KWIS III is a day long event of virtual classes as well as activities focused on the arts & sciences of the Italian peninsula from antiquity to 1600 CE.

Learn Historical Dance!

Each year we have had the pleasure of an historical ball led by the Creative Contessa herself!

All. Italian. Everything.

Etruria. Romagna. Norman Sicily. Milano. La Serenissima. #YesAllItalies

Uncover the past

Our classes, demos, and dances help us learn history, not by rote memorization, but by understanding the lives of the people who came before us.
