Ciao a tutti –

Exciting things are happening this November for lovers of things Italian.

First of all, the lineup for SIFF’s Cinema Italian Style, November 7-14 has been announced. I’ve included some info below as well as a link to their website for more information: This is a great opportunity to see some of the latest and best of Italian Cinema. Dante is once again this year a sponsor of the festival. I hope to see many of you there.

Then, the Seattle Art Museum has an exhibit of art works from the Capodimonte Museum in Naples , Flesh & Blood: Italian Masterpieces from the Capodimonte Museum. Flesh and Blood offers a rare opportunity to experience the beauty of art from the 16th and 17th centuries from a Neapolitan point of view. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience, unless – that is – you’re lucky enough to make it to Naples some time! Sarebbe i migliori di tutti!

Finally, Dante has joined with Il Punto to present a special event on Milano on Wednesday, November 20 at St. Patrick’s Social Hall. Federica Gabardi, a Milan native and a Women’s Empowerment Expert, will be the guest speaker. The presentation will be in Italian. I’ve included more information below.

A presto,
Dan DeMatteis
