JUNE CULTURAL MEETING
The Society will be showing the box office record-breaking Italian movie Quo vado? (Where am I going?) directed by Gennaro Nunziante and featuring Checco Zalone.
A comedy that captures Italians’ love for il posto fisso – a job for life – has become an unlikely blockbuster hit in Italy. The success of Quo Vado? reflects a relatively recent change in Italy: the cushy public sector jobs promising steady income and great benefits that were a staple of the country’s economic engine are now considered a thing of the past. In their place has come high unemployment – which, while improving, is still at 11.3% – and job insecurity, which has hit young workers particularly hard.
As always, the presentation will take place at 7:30 pm, at Mt. Carmel Parish Hall, 3549 Navajo St., Denver.
EXHIBIT FOR DANTE MEMBERS Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius.
Inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor, philosopher. Although Leonardo da Vinci died in 1519, his influence has endured. His extraordinary legacy comes to life in Leonardo da Vinci: 500 Years of Genius, the most comprehensive exhibition about Leonardo ever presented is currently at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
