If you have a deep-seated love for Italy, a fascination with Italian language, culture, and cuisine, or a persistent curiosity about contemporary Italian lifestyles and attitudes, you've come to the right place! 3E Centre for Italian Culture offers Italian language classes, informal aperitivi, cooking nights, film screenings, a book club, a writers' circle, coffee and conversation hour, organized summer trips to Italy, and much, much more. We want to build a loving community of people around a vibrant, authentic, current version of Italian culture. We are a husband and wife team: he is from a beach-town not far from Rome; I am from Montreal, have a PhD in Italian, and lived in Italy for five years by his side. We want to share with you our knowledge of and experience with Italy in a warm, relaxed, and inviting environment. Will you join us?
The 3E Writers' Circle is a group of young writers in Montreal looking to get to know each other and hear about each others' projects, successes, and struggles. Each month, we meet to put the spotlight on a recently published work or special project and to swap tips on creative productivity.
Our next meeting will feature satirical writer, editor of The Beaverton (online) and former contributor to This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Emma Overton.
This month, we'll be watching Simone Spada's 2018 commercial hit "Hotel Gagarin." Watch what happens when a rag-tag team of misfits looking to hit it big in the film industry end up stranded and penniless in war-torn Armenia. This comedy, deceptively light, speaks to deeper questions about happiness and the unexpected places in which it is often found. Watch the official trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dP7rZg8oLU The screening will be followed by a short conversation with 3E's Leadership Committee.
