A Legacy Of Civility

The Civility Initiative at Johns Hopkins

The late P.M. Forni, the Italian literature scholar who put civility on the map in Maryland, still inspires his fans. Dan Buccino, a psychotherapist who succeeded Forni as head of the Civility Initiative at Johns Hopkins, says he learned from Forni that humans have always struggled to find a civil way to deal with each other.

Update: The Italian Cultural Center of Maryland will postpone its dinner honoring Forni's legacy to early May.
