      Italy Reads Italy Reads is John Cabot University’s community-based reading and cultural exchange program that began in 2009 with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for The Big Read Rome. The Big Read Rome was a great success; students from nearly 20 Italian public and international high schools in Rome read Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, viewed the film at JCU’s “Cinema Mockingbird,” attended theater productions by the English Theatre of Rome, and actively participated in book discussions with JCU students. The success of The Big Read Rome led John Cabot University to expand this American cultural exchange program to a wider Italian high school community and create our own program which we called Italy Reads. We are pleased to announce that the book for Italy Reads 2012 is F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.
