Audience choice

You may have noticed our suggestion box, located just outside our projection room at Casa d’Italia. It’s not there for decoration! We take great pleasure in going through the little slips of paper on which you write your film suggestions (especially because you have good taste in films). The ritual inspired “Audience Choice”, the series where you choose the films to be shown. What’s the next film in the series? Maybe you’ll be the one to decide on your next cinema outing…
