Cena Italiana - Pizza & Movie - "Facing Windows" "La finestra di fronte"

Benvenuti a 'Cena italiana' - Pizza and a Movie! We will be inviting some other Meetup Groups for this event.

The movie is 'Finestra di fronte' (Facing Windows), Italy 2003, directed and written by Ferzan Ozpetek, one of our favorite directors - ask Vito :). It is a drama/romance, with references to The Holocaust and the Roman Jewish Ghetto.

"Overburdened and stuck in a greying marriage, Giovanna takes to caring for the Jewish Holocaust survivor her husband brings home. As she begins to reflect on her life, she turns to the man who lives across from her."

The movie has won 21 awards from Bangkok to Copenhagen film festivals, including the Italian Golden Globe in 2003.

You can see more about the movie, including trailers at

www.imdb.com and at http://cineuropa.org

Runtime: 102 min

The movie is in Italian with English subtitles.

The dinner charge is for pizza, and soft drink (and maybe salad). Tax and gratuities are not included. The movie is free. I will try to get the price down to $15, especially if we get 20 people or more.

Separate checks, credit cards accepted.

The event will take place only if at least 15 people sign up (between ALL the participating Meetup Groups). This number must be reached by April 26. If the headcount is not met, the event will be cancelled.

The maximum number of attendees is 30, but we will watch the 'wait list' and try to get you in if there is a cancellation.

Due to limited seating and as the owner needs a correct headcount, in the event you are not able to attend, please cancel your reservation with at least 24 hours' notice.
