Adjunct Lecturer in Italian
Sandro Sechi attended the University of Milan, where he received a Masters Degree in Russian and Spanish Literature. After six years as the editorial assistant at SKY TV in Milan, Sandro moved to New York City to work for the Rizzoli Publishing Company. Shortly after his arrival in New York, Sandro became the assistant to famed Italian journalist and author, Oriana Fallaci – a position he held until shortly before her death in 2006. Sandro’s book about the experience, Gli Occhi di Oriana (Oriana’s Eyes) was published in Italy in 2006. Throughout his time in New York, Sandro taught individual and group Italian classes, and eventually opened the first Italian language school at New York City’s Italian Consulate and Cultural Center. In Milan, New York and now, Portland, ME, Sandro has been teaching Italian to all ages and levels for fifteen years.
