Italian Studies at Notre Dame announces the official launch of this year's series of "Italian Film Nights," whose theme is "Rome in the Cinema." The "Italian Film Nights," which are in their 8th year of existence, are intended to give students enrolled in Italian courses additional opportunities for enrichment in and out of the classroom. The films of the Fall semester provided a historic progression of events in the city of Rome, while the films of the Spring semester will portray more contemporary themes.
The film series will begin with the Thursday, January 26 screening of Michelangelo Frammartino's 2010 film Le quattro volte at 7:00pm in the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. Tickets for this film are $6, but are reduced to $3 for students.
All of the other films in the Italian Film Series will be screened, free of charge, in DeBartolo 129 at 6:30pm. We invite you to join us for the following Italian film nights:
- Monday February 6 – La meglio gioventù by Marco Tullio Giordana (2003), presented by Giovanna Lenzi-Sandusky
- Tuesday February 21 – Romanzo Criminale by Michele Placido (2005), presented by Sabrina Ferri
- Wednesday March 21– Le Fate Ignoranti by Ferzan Ozpetek (2001), presented by Umberto Taccheri
