Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Melbourne is delighted to invite you to the “Ferragosto Aperitivo al Cinema” on Thursday, 15 August 2019 from 5:30pm.
Let’s celebrate Ferragosto together with tasty Italian delicacies and drinks at Brunetti, followed by a brilliant Italian movie at Cinema Nova.
We will be screening “Benvenuti al Sud” (“Welcome to the South”, Italian language with English subtitles), directed by Luca Miniero with Claudio Bisio, Alessandro Siani, Angela Finocchiaro, the hilarious box office sensation showcased at the Opening Night of the Italian Film Festival 2011. A witty comedy of cultural clichés on the north-south rivalry, which grossed over 30 million euros at the Italian box office alone!
Plot Summary: Living comfortably in the north, post office worker Monza Alberto would do anything to be transferred to Milan. When a mischievous attempt backfires, he is sent instead to the south. Once there, he realises it isn’t the backwater province he imagined, but a place full of hospitable people.
