This past weekend Stony Brook University hosted its 13th Annual Center for Italian Studies Festival of New Italian Cinema. The festival was held in the theater of the Charles B. Wang Center. This year’s festival was organized in collaboration with the Associazione Culturale ArtMedia (Rome, Italy). The event presented “Italy on Screen Today/Wind of Europe,” which is a project that aims to promote Italian contemporary cinema. The festival associate, Giacomo Rocchini, introduced the films and highlighted cultural anecdotes and important themes of each.
