We will present the most famous classical films of past Italian cinema and the latest ones presented in the European film festivals. These films produced by our greatest directors like De Sica, Rossellini, Fellini, Pasolini, Scola, Amelio, Bellocchio, Bertolucci, Costanzo, Placido, Segre, Sorrentino, Visconti and others will be introduced briefly before the projection. Each of you can invite friends. We cannot charge for the film but there will be a charge of £10 for a glass of wine and share of the cost of hiring the room. Guests will be charged £12.50 which also includes membership of the Accademia for 1 day. There will be a cash bar available.
The films will be once a month, ten times a year, on a Thursday evening at 7:30pm but anyone can arrive from 7pm onwards. We plan to present the film twice at 2pm and at 7:30pm
