Divorzio all’italiana / Divorce Italian Style (1961 – B&W – 108’) 

The Portico Library, 57 Mosley Street, Manchester

Film in Italian with English subtitles (rare edition)

Introduction in English by Dr Silvana Serra – Q&A session to follow

As part of the Italian celebrations for Marcello Mastroianni, the protagonist of “La Dolce Vita”, this funny and intelligent satire portrays the hypocritical view of the Italian society of the time towards rejecting divorce as illegal while accepting “honour killing” as a minor transgression. This is a cinematic journey into the “Commedia all’italiana”. The movie won the Oscar/Academy Award for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay.

Drinks and nibbles to follow.

£4 members of Portico and Dante
£5 non-members / £3 students and unemployed

La gita a Tindari / Excursion to Tindari”
(Italian with English subtitles)

The Portico Library, 57 Mosley Street, M2 3HY Manchester

detective-montalbano

Introduction by Silvana Serra – Q&A session to follow

With Excursion to Tindari we go back to the beginning of the UK television phenomenon born after Andrea Camilleri’s detective stories centred on Inspector Montalbano’s investigations.
Excursion to Tindari was the first episode to be aired by BBC on December 2008. By identifying the peculiarities of Camilleri’s fictional characters we will trace the worldwide long-lasting curiosity and appreciation surrounding his work.

The screening will be followed by ‘arancini & vino’ (one of the famous arancini of Montalbano and a glass of Sicilian wine)

Prices: £4 members of Portico and Dante
£5 non-members / £3 students and unemployed
