Join us for a special showing of Benvenuti al Sud...

Benvenuti al Sud (English: Welcome to the South) is an Italian comedy film directed by Luca Miniero.

Overwhelmed by his wife, a Northern Italy postal worker feigns a disability to request a transfer to Milan and when he's unmasked is sent for two years to a far and tiny village near Naples; he moves there alone, scared and full of the typical prejudices about the south, but there he meets lovely people who make him feel at home. Now the challenge is explain it to his wife, so he chooses to make believe her that all the topics in the south are true and that his life is a hell."

This film will be shown in Italian with subtitles in English and afterwards you are welcome to join us for a meal where a large party will be practising their Italian conversation skills gently aided by our language teacher Maria.

You don't have to join the class. You are most welcome to see the film or book a meal without them but if you DO WISH to join them please let us know when you are booking. You will be made most welcome. Most of our Italian conversationalists are beginner/ intermediate level of ability.
