MOVIE NIGHT RETURNS!
After many months, we are resuming Friday night at the movies. On Friday, June 11 at 7:30 p.m., we will watch Che bella giornata, (What a Beautiful Day) a comedy starring Checco Zalone. The story goes that after dreaming of becoming a police officer, but failing the entrance exam for the third time, a young man with connections soon finds himself a security agent at the Milan Cathedral with disastrous results. We will meet, as before COVID, at Mt. Carmel Parish Hall, 3549 Navajo St., Denver.
Join us for fun, fellowship, and, of course, popcorn!
PICNIC IN JULY
This summer we will resume our annual picnic on July 25th at Oakhurst Park in Westminster. Watch for details in the next Notiziario but mark your calendar now.

Italy Establishes National Dante Day
Among the greatest poets of Italian and world literature, Dante was born in Florence in 1265, and died in exile in Ravenna in 1321. His tomb is still in Ravenna. It was during exile that Dante composed his greatest work, The Divine Comedy, his vision of the afterlife where references to myth, history and scripture serve to comment on the politics and political figures of his day.
