Take a break from the busy work week and enjoy movie night with the family. The Italian Cultural Foundation at Casa Belvedere has launched their Tuesday Night Outdoor Italian Film Festival – Cinema Sotto Le Stelle. The movies are in Italian with English subtitles, and will be shown in the back of the foundation’s mansion.
Mid-August Lunch: The charismatic Gianni Di Gregorio stars in his directorial debut – an utterly charming tale of great food, feisty ladies, and unlikely friendships during a very Roman holiday. Broke, and armed with only a glass of wine and a wry sense of humor, middle-aged Gianni resides with his 93-year-old mother in their ancient apartment. The condo debts are mounting, but if Gianni looks after the building manager’s mother during the Pranzo di Ferragosto (Italy’s biggest summer holiday, and the Feast of the Assumption), all will be forgiven. But the manager also shows up with an auntie, and then a doctor friend appears with his mother. Can Gianni keep four such lively mamas well fed and happy in these cramped quarters?
