Italian Language Meeting – March 24, 2021
March 24, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
When: March 24, 2021
Speaker: Movie Night
Topic: La Divina Comedia
There will be a “social hour” beginning at 7 pm. The presentation will start at 7:30.
About the Presentation:
Dante’s L’Inferno !!!
Our Italian meeting will be a bit different this month in celebration of the Anno Dantesco. We will share a viewing of the 1911 silent Italian film, L’Inferno. This hour-long film, which took three years to make, was the first full-length Italian feature film ever made. Although the print is “vintage,” it will be easy to view as a screen share in our zoom, which will enable us to use the chat to make comments to each other while we enjoy it! As always we will begin the zoom with informal conversation between 7:00 and 7:30 and the movie will start at 7:30. Have your popcorn and beverage of choice ready to go!

Live Meeting COVID Guidelines
Even as COVID variants continue to plague the population, we are trying to return to offering live meetings for Dante this season. We’ve all been longing for a return to shared meals, and since this is foundational to Dante activities, we want to make it possible. Following the guidelines and regulations now in place by many workplaces, public venues and community groups, the Dante Board of Directors has agreed to the guidelines listed below as an acceptable plan to keep us as safe as possible when meeting in person.
1) Please do not attend if you have been exposed to COVID, or are experiencing any symptoms of illness. We will make best efforts to record the presentations so that those who cannot attend in person can enjoy them afterwards. There will also be a few meetings presented on ZOOM instead of live this season, for all to enjoy like last year.
2) Masks are encouraged. Although no longer required, we encourage attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking.
Thank you again for your understanding and observance of these guidelines. Let’s work together to control COVID!!!
