giorno speciale posterAnother Italy: Stories, relationships and emotions in Italian cinema at the beginning of the millennium

2022 marks the eighth consecutive year of fruitful collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, the cultural hub of Liverpool City Council. A collaboration that is expressed with the organization of film series that have contemporary Italian production as their focus.

This year, the series is entitled Another Italy: Stories, relationships and emotions in Italian cinema at the beginning of the millennium with a clear reference to the now consolidated choice of proposing a series of feature films that can give a vision of our country at the dawn of second decade of this third millennium.

Each film will be in Italian and will have English subtitles. At the start of each film the audience will be able to enjoy a short intro by our expert panel, composed of Cristiana Palmieri, Federico Spoletti and Angela Prudenzi.
