Bittersweet...such is life - Vite in agrodolce (series of online screenings)

The Italian Cultural Institute, thanks to the collaboration with one of its consolidated local partners, the CPAC (Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre), is pleased to be able to confirm the offer, even if reduced and offered online, of a series of movie screenings.

felliniThis is the reduced version of the contemporary Italian cinema series Bittersweet ... such is life – Vite in agrodolce that was due to start on March 31 at the cultural hub of the City of Liverpool, the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, and that, due to the known restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 emergency, had to be cancelled.

The films are now three, and two of those were directed by a true giant of Italian cinema, Federico Fellini, whose 100th birth anniversary recurs in 2020.

The program includes the screening, on a special digital platform, of the following films:la dolce vita poster

  • Tuesday 23 June at 7:00 pm - La Dolce Vita, F. Fellini, 1960
  • Tuesday 21 July at 7:00 pm - I Vitelloni, F. Fellini, 1953
  • Tuesday 25 August at 7:00 pm - Ten Winters, V. Mieli, 2009

All those interested in watching the movies can book by using the following links:




dieci inverniThe screenings are intended as once-only events and it will therefore not be possible to access the links on other dates or at times other than those indicated. Two days before the date set for the film's screening all the people who have booked will receive an email with the access link to the online platform and the password to be used for watching the movie.

The screenings will be preceded by a greeting and a brief presentation by the director of the Institute, Lillo Guarneri, and by the director of the CPAC, Craig Donarski.

We remain confident that we will soon be able to offer the other Bittersweet ... such is life films of the series, which originally included eight screenings.

We will be grateful to all our members and supporters for spreading the word about the initiative which, thanks to the use of new technologies, can be accessed by a much wider audience.
