Movies, News & Latest Recipes
We host several events per year covering all different aspects of Italian culture. Some of our past events have included Italian food and wine tastings, Italian movie nights, visits to local shops and art galleries featureing Italian wares and artists. One of our most popular events was a vistit to a Vespa shop Where we were treated to a lesson on the history of Vespa and a test drive.
Silvio Soldino directs this gentle comedy about a housewife who temporarily flees from the grinding tedium of her household duties and drifts into a world of amicable weirdos. When Rosalba (Licia Maglietta) is accidentally forgotten by her tour bus at a roadside restaurant, she does not wait there as instructed. She decides to hitchhike home, but on a whim, she ends up in Venice instead. Quietly exhilarated at the prospect of being alone for a spell, she checks into an inn run by a kindly yet eccentric Icelander (Bruno Ganz). Her plans to return the next day are thwarted when she misses her train and does not have enough money to buy another ticket. Soon she is gainfully employed at a flower shop run by an irascible old anarchist. Though her teenaged sons do not seem all that bothered by their mom's absence, Rosalba's husband grows increasing agitated at the interruption in his routine, so he hires a bumbling detective to track her down. Italian and subtitled in English.
