Cinema Italia 2022

palace logoMulti-ethnic Italy: The new Italians

The Italian Cultural Institute in Sydney once again renews its collaboration with Palace Cinemas in 2022 by presenting a series of screenings dedicated to some of the most significant contemporary cultural and social aspects of Italian life as well as representative figures of Italian cinema, including those only recently appeared to notoriety.

The series has particular significance in a period in which, while still complying withmarina the directives of the health authorities dictated by the pandemic, the organizers are able to offer lovers of Italian culture, members and students a series of enjoyable screenings in the hall.

This year the series takes up the title Multiethnic Italy: The new Italians forcibly abandoned in 2021 due to the pandemic, and includes a series of contemporary Italian films that will illustrate Italy which after having been, in the last century, a country of departure for third-party destinations in recent decades it has become a destination for emigration.

Screenings will take place at the Palace Cinema Norton Street, Leichhardt. Patrons will receive a flute of prosecco upon arrival.

The films will be preceded by a brief introduction by at least one guest who is different from time to time, to whom, at the end of the screening, the public can also ask some questions. The moderator will be Antonella Beconi, coordinator for the Italian language at the Center of Continuing Education of the University of Sydney, on behalf of the Italian Cultural Institute.
