This one day workshop will explore an Italian film while practising the language. The viewing of the film will be in fact accompanied by activities devised to comment on the film in an interactive way. Intermediate level at least required, but everybody is welcome. (Film with subtitles in English or Italian).
Pranzo di Ferragosto (Mid-August Lunch)
A lovely, delicate comedy where an easy-going single male, Gianni (Gianni Di Gregorio), who still lives with his elderly mother as a typical Italian "mammone", has been able to manage through life and has no complaints about that. But not working also means not being able to pay the bills for the general expenses of where they live, so the landlord has had enough. He makes Gianni an offer: Alfonso wants to go on holiday (Ferragosto) and will forget about the bills if Gianni takes care of his mother. Soon, Gianni is taking care of several mothers and trying to stay afloat.
