Cinema Italiano

This fall, we have planned for two Italian movie nights. They are:
October 10- “Se Dio Vuole (God Willing)”. This is a 2015 film, a comedy/drama, starring Alessandro Gassmann (son of very famous Italian Actor/Director Vittorio Gassmann).
November 14 – “Palio”. This is also a 2015 film, documentary and drama. It is about the famous horse race, Il Palio, run twice annually in the large piazza in Siena, Piazza del Campo. If you have ever been to Siena, you won’t believe how they run a horse race there. If you haven’t been, you will be even more amazed!
All are invited, members and non-members. Admission is free, as is the popcorn. Drinks are available for purchase. Remember, all movies are in Italian with English subtitles.
Come to enjoy a free, quality movie and bring a friend!

Parliamo Italiano nights.

This fall, another chance to learn and practice your Italian language skills is coming. Through offering formal classes for a few years, we got a lot of positive feedback. Some of the feedback asked for more opportunities for just conversation. We listened and have planned something for the fall.
Starting on Thursday, September 19, we will be hosting Parliamo Italiano nights approximately every 2 weeks for 6 sessions. This will be a chance for anyone, members and non members, to come to the Lounge at the Dante Club for an hour or so, and just converse in Italian. We will have native Italian speakers there to help us out, topics pre-selected to help guide the conversation. We have also paired up with Duolingo, the free language learning site, to offer these sessions.
The evenings are ABSOLUTELY FREE to everyone and the bar will be open for purchase of drinks.
The dates are as follows:
September 19
October 17
November 7
November 21
December 5
The start time is 7:00 PM (19:00 ore, in Italian time) and will last approximately one hour. The format will be casual, and if numbers allow, we can break up into smaller groups to match your current level of speaking.
So, mark those dates in your calendar, tell your friends and don’t miss this opportunity to speak Italian!
