Iacovella, Scary Movie
Italian dept’s may seem a useless investment for colleges and universities — and I myself tried to avoid Italians at all costs, at U.C. Berkeley — but there are millions of Italian American citizens in the U.S., and many families have at least one Italian ancestor, esp. on the East Coast, between Boston and Miami.
All these people may be curious about their origins and may want to know more about Italian history, art, language and culture. Not to mention trips to the Vatican, and various legal matters pertaining European citizenship and how to gain access to affordable healthcare. For all these reasons and many more, Italy remains a top destination for tourism from all around the world.
An Italian dept may be a good investment for a college or university, but that’s true IF AND ONLY IF the personnel selection follows the best and most transparent of academic standards and practices.
Vice versa, if it’s left in the hands of dishonest individuals who want to give a job to their cousin Vinny, it’s like adding insult to injury for both students and scholars who’ve been investing a lot of time and money in their culture.
Yale’s Italian dept is full of people with learning disabilities, basket cases and ignorant plagiarists
such as Anna Iacovella, Micheal Farina and Carol Chiodo, linked below.
Let’s have a look at these academic frauds.
Little, fat, ignorant pig.
Micheal Farina, B.A. & M.A. University of Connecticut.
Farina knows next to nothing about linguistics & translation studies, and yet he “teaches” elementary Italian to naive and unsuspecting undergrads, courtesy of their paying parents.
But that’s not enough for him, in terms of academic and financial fraud.
Hence, with his “inner eye,” he focuses on “Dante, Michelangelo, Greek Civilization, Roman Civilization and Greek Mythology,” for which he studied real hard at the University of Connecticut.
Farina’s inner eye 🙂
Careful, this may damage your eyesight: Carol Chiodo’s academic and financial fraud.
Carol Chiodo was admitted to Yale’s Italian dept in 2007 with only a high-school diploma from a nun school for kids with “special needs” and learning disabilities in Turin.
Chiodo did NOT have any B.A. at the time of her admission. She had to get that later, between 2008 and 2012, at Fairfield University WHILE AT THE SAME TIME pretending to study, research, read & write for the Italian doctorate AS WELL AS “teaching” Italian language at Yale and elsewhere in order to pay for tuition fees at Fairfield University
THAT’S A GIGANTIC, RECORD-BREAKING ACADEMIC & FINANCIAL FRAUD!
The fattest I’ve ever seen!
Anna Iacovella, on the other hand, has a B.A. from a NUN COLLEGE in Naples called SAINT ORSOLA BENINCASA: https://www.unisob.na.it/
Let’s set the record straight and make sure everybody understands how this fraud works: with COMPLETE GARBAGE like that, anybody would have a hard time finding any job in Italy, let alone a teaching post at Yale!
in Italy, there are NO private colleges or universities except for Bocconi or Luiss, which are rated only in certain fields, i.e. economics for Bocconi, based in Milan; and political sciences for Luiss, located in Rome.
A desperate soul like Iacovella, with a B.A. from a “nun college,” would have A LOT of problems finding a job even in a post office!
That’s the least appropriate sort of “instructors” for the Ivy League.
But somehow Iacovella got into the Italian dept, and has been teaching Italian to paying students for years.
How was it even possible?
If the Ivy League prides itself for being the best, they should make sure they’re also hiring the best teaching staff from every country in the world, especially for foreign language departments that must rely on mother-tongue instructors. The first thing to do, therefore, is to know how the different education systems work: what the best universities are, in every single academic field, where they’re located. Spoiler alert: Bologna wins all — humanities, law and medicine.
In Italy, the top 3 universities for modern languages & linguistics are the University of Bologna, the University of Venice, and the University of Trieste. The best programs in Greek & Latin and Renaissance Studies are at the universities of Bologna, Rome, Pisa and Florence. But Mazzotta carefully avoids those dangerous fish-tanks, full of BIGGER FISH that can expose his ignorance in everything having to do with Greek language and Literature, Latin language and literature, Ancient History & Historiography, Christian theology, etc.
You can’t steal money in “medieval studies” without these foundations.
The best high-schools and universities in European countries like the U.K., Italy, France, Germany, etc., are PUBLIC and MANAGED BY THE STATE.
Regarding Italian universities, there are only two private but secular universities that provide quality education. Although not in every field: Bocconi in industrial Milan is rated high only for economics; while Luiss, located in the capital, is known mainly for political and social sciences.
These are the only two exceptions, while all the other universities are public and managed by the Italian State. The very idea of a “nun college” is HILARIOUS and RIDICULOUS in Italy. And with a worthless diploma like that, people end up unemployed & living in their parents’ basement.
The same applies to high-school, where the foundations of learning are established.
Private high-schools in Italy are for kids with learning disabilities, who could never make it in tough and rigorous public schools, like my historical lyceum, Ludovico Antonio Muratori, est. 1591. But at Yale’s Italian department, you have Anna Iacovella coming from an Italian NUN COLLEGE and Carol Chiodo from an Italian NUN SCHOOL!
Jeez, they must love Italian nuns at Yale! 🙂
And finally, just to remain in New Haven and keep causing damage to people and property, Miss Iacovella got a PhD in “education” from Southern Connecticut when she was already in her mid-forties!
It’s never too late for certain people to recycle themselves, right?
Who admitted these worthless people here? And based on what, exactly?
Certainly not “academic credentials.”
Would you ever trust someone with Mazzotta’s crooked fuck-face, if you met him in Reggio Calabria?
So, don’t assume he’ll be any different, if you meet him somewhere else.
As a country, Italy has a rich, industrial and culturally stimulating North that drags the entire nation into the G8; but also a very poor, rural and culturally backward South that’s run by the Mafia.
And the Mafia has been growing stronger in recent years, by recruiting masses of illegal immigrants willing to do anything to get money. In fact, people who live in the South cannot even open a coffee-shop without paying rent to the Mafia.
What’s the mafia between Mazzotta and local universities, such as the University of Connecticut, Southern and Fairfield?
Paying rent to the Mafia.
You certainly won’t get a top education in Plato, Aristotle and St Thomas Aquinas at Cornell.
You need Bologna, Rome or the Normal School of Pisa for that.
Although I’m sure you can find many other things in Ithaca…
Mazzotta could never place in Italy’s best (or worst) universities a wannabe such as Micheal Farina, Anna Iacovella and Carol Chiodo. The trick may only work in THIS SMALLER FISH-TANK, where there are fewer Italians on the job market, and ONLY IF American administrators don’t know what they’re doing and don’t care to double-check. Do you understand, now?
There’s a place and a season for (almost) everything.
If you want to recruit the appropriate teaching staff for the Ivy League, make sure to interview newly grads, lecturers and/or tenure-track professors from the TOP ITALIAN UNIVERSITIES indicated above.
Liceo Cadorna, Saint Orsola Benincasa or the University of Connecticut will NOT improve Yale’s ratings, or justify its hilarious tuition fees. Liceo Cadorna: http://www.adorazione.it/adorazione2013/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=201&Itemid=668
Farina’s inner eye 🙂
Salovey, Mazzotta is a 77-year-old, sick and decrepit piece of junk.
But you shouldn’t wait for him to DIE or be FORCED INTO RETIREMENT by a devastating stroke, heart-attack and/or Alzheimer. You should CLEAN HOUSE much sooner, reallocating resources and saving money for better scholars — which is not difficult — from top Italian universities.
There’s a growing mass of decrepit, corrupt individuals in colleges and universities, such as Giuseppe Mazzotta, aged 77, who’s being kept alive only thanks to a cabinet full of hard-core drugs against heart disease and high blood pressure, which he gets through Yale’s health plan.
Mazzotta’s corruption is like two sides of the same coin:
On the one hand: ATTACKING & SLANDERING SUPERIOR CANDIDATES, WHO HAVE EARNED TOP-RATED ACADEMIC DEGREES FROM SOME OF THE BEST UNIVERSITIES IN THE WORLD.
And on the other: SUPPORTING THE LEAST QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS, AND LYING ABOUT THEIR CREDENTIALS, IN ORDER TO CREATE A RECORD-BREAKING ACADEMIC & FINANCIAL FRAUD.
Mazzotta is a corrupt pathological liar with senile dementia, who’s constantly making up bullshit to slander and kill the personal and professional life of much younger people, denying their UNDENIABLE academic merit and their UNDENIABLE academic qualifications.
OBJECTIVE FACTS DESTROY ACADEMIC FRAUDS LIKE MAZZOTTA
When I moved to the United States two Sabbaticals ago, I was financially independent. I was not in need like today’s illegal immigrants – quite the opposite. I owned my own condo, had a great Mercedes car and many job opportunities at home in the field of education. At Yale, I was selected for graduate school in comparative literature from a large pool of applicants from around the world, firstly because of my documented academic record, and secondly because I’m a polyglot and able to work well with different foreign languages and cultures, e.g. English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Latin.
I graduated with the highest score and the longest positive record both in high school and at my university. The University of Bologna, where I graduated in English and German with Highest Honors and Printing Dignity, was established in 1088 and is commonly regarded as the most ancient in the world – also known as Alma Mater Studiorum. Likewise, I attended one of the most competitive and ancient lyceums in Italy – established in 1591 by the noble Este family in Modena – and, thanks to the continuity between the Italian Principates and the Republic, one of the most ancient in the world.
In five years, I took ca. 925 hours of English Language & Literature (37 academic weeks x 5 hours/week x 5 years); ca. 740 hours of Latin Lang & Lit (37 x 4 x 5); and ca. 370 hours of Art History (37 x 2 x 5). That’s much more than most “classicists” take today, being admitted into a state-sponsored graduate program in the United States merely after a couple of summer-school classes in Latin or Greek.
Graduating with HIGHEST HONOR from one of the MOST ANCIENT Italian high-schools, established in 1591, is an OBJECTIVE FACT. Either you have achieved that honor, or you have not — and Mazzotta himself has not, let alone the ridiculous THREE STOOGES he’s been supporting for years: Carol Chiodo, Micheal Farina and Anna Iacovella.
Carol Chiodo and Anna Iacovella are retarded, ignorant fools who have attended Italian NUN SCHOOLS for challenged kids with mental impairment and learning disabilities. How much PUBLIC and PRIVATE MONEY was wasted on those ignorant suckers in the United States, over the years?
All pix in high definition — expand to see details.
Nota Bene: I graduated with highest honors from my historical high-school in ANNO SCOLASTICO (school year) 1994-1995. In Italy, smart students finish high-school at 19, as they start grammar school at 6. Since I was born on June 3, 1976, I seamlessly finished high-school at 19, in 1995.
And like Prince Hamlet, “I know not seems.”
On the other hand, stupid people with mental disabilities like Carol Chiodo and Anna Iacovella may have to repeat 1 or 2 years at a nun school for retarded kids, like Liceo Cadorna Istituto Adorazione: http://www.adorazione.it/adorazione2013/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&layout=item&id=229&Itemid=669
WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY DOING AT YALE?
Other dates on this official document issued by state officials — speaking of state-sponsored, undocumented immigration…
1984 was when the PRESIDENTE DELLA COMMISSIONE (Head of the Commission), Prof. Maria Teresa Muscolo, obtained her state licence # 0006805, which has nothing to do with anything, or anyone, here. FYI, in 1984 I was 8 and playing with my school-mates.
July 2, 1990 was when a DECRETO MINISTERIALE (a law by the Ministry of Education) was passed to declare a perfect correspondence between the curriculum studiorum at my lyceum and the resulting state degree.
February 29, 1996 was when an official copy of the certificate was issued to me.
Lyceum Ludovico Antonio Muratori ran a super-intensive program, CLASSICO LINGUISTICO SPERIMENTALE, combining the classics and modern languages.
We had a ridiculous amount of Italian literature, history, art history and philosophy (with Michelina Borsari, who’s still teaching at the university) and 3 foreign languages with their respective literatures, i.e. English, French and German; in addition to 3 hours/week of Latin language and literature, for 9 consecutive months a year, for 5 fucking years. In fact, I had more Latin at my historical high-school than Mazzotta at fucking Cornell.
You’re NOT going to get away with this fraud, I guarantee it.
Mazzotta’s thick and dumb Calabrese accent badly needs a translation! And a team of professional editors with a non-disclosure/non-disparagement contract are needed to correct his grammar, or lack thereof.
Likewise, graduating with HIGHEST HONOR and PRINTING DIGNITY from the world’s most ancient university, and Italy’s best, is an OBJECTIVE FACT — either you have achieved that honor, or you have not.
Mazzotta’s three stooges — Farina, Chiodo and Iacovella — haven’t even come close to it.
In fact, Mazzotta himself comes from Cornell, and that was the height of his academic achievement, congrats! 🙂
How many Yale students were cheated out of their money, and given SHIT in exchange for their GOLD?
Alma Mater Studiorum, Bologna 1088
All pix in high definition — expand to see details.
I defended my Laurea dissertation on James Joyce in front of a Commission headed by Prof. Rosa Maria Bollettieri Bosinelli, and graduated in the Fall 2004. After winning a competitive fellowship, I spent my junior year at the University of California at Berkeley studying computer science, wherefore I created these fancy websites; English literature and English linguistics, in particular METAPHORS, with George Lakoff and his wife, Robin Lakoff.
And by the way, George Lakoff also wrote one of my enthusiastic recommendations for Yale.
The entire program lasted 4 years, from 2000 to 2004. The degree itself, printed on expensive parchment and with unique decorations from Alma Mater Studiorum — was formally issued on February 2, 2005. God’s irony, Feb 2 is also James Joyce’s birthday.
Let me rub your nose in it.
Mazzotta allows ignorant suckers like Chiodo, Farina and Iacovella to occupy academic posts far above their abilities and academic qualifications.
In this way, they have been stealing both public and private money for years — from tax payers, private donors, working families paying tuition fees, unsuspecting students. Furthermore, they have been stealing academic posts from ACTUAL SCHOLARS who did invest their time and financial resources in a top-rated education and culture they can’t even match.
This is not just “hypocrisy,” but a shameless ACADEMIC & FINANCIAL SCAM that’s been going of FOR YEARS at Yale’s Italian department, and which originated from a crook and a criminal from mob-ridden Calabria, who should spend the rest of his sorry life IN JAIL.
Corrupt individuals die everyday, vanishing from people’s awareness and becoming archaeological remains. External observers can see this quite clearly. It’s only the criminals themselves who don’t get it.
Very bad news for their failing public-relations dept:
covering up your CRIMES with SLANDER is ALWAYS A FAILING COMMUNICATION STRATEGY.
The Three Stooges
If your academic standards are the Three Stooges, even Gaga is more qualified to teach Italian!
A thoroughly good girl from Italy, she’s also a scholar of Pasolini’s Salo’, or the 120 Days of Sodom. A great movie — an honest and accurate portrayal of what’s been going on in politics, religion and academia for many, many years. Gaga’s producers had some sophistication…
I like watching these hypocrites, as they contradict themselves at every turn 🙂
Don’t call her name, Alejandro, Gaga’s been busy fucking around for too many years, now!
What a talented artist! 😉
Keeping her feelings under control…
Think of all the MONEY WASTED with ignorant Micheal -Fucking- Farina…
…and the nun’s schools of Carol Chiodo and Anna Iacovella!
Wild and Wacky, what an excellent cultural initiative, Salovey!
The proverbial elephant in the room: Chiodo is a shameless and record-breaking scam.
Don’t be a hypocrite: this has been going on for decades. It did not start today or a week ago, but it’s connected to the criminals who have been running the Italian dept for too many years, primarily Giuseppe -Mob- Mazzotta and Peggy -Piggy- Marcus. A thorough cleaning is in order!
