Ustica, the Diamond Years – Ustica, Gli Anni Del Diamante

April 19, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the AICC and the Congregazione di San Bartolomeo Apostolo for the 2017 documentary, Ustica, the Diamond Years. From 1971-2005, Ustica, the small island in the Mediterranean sea, just north of Palermo, captured the world’s attention for its success in both baseball and softball. The Ustica Baseball Club and the Ustica Softball Club both had tremendous success playing locally, nationally, and internationally – in fact, the team even played in New Orleans! Join us for this fascinating documentary on the rise and fall of Ustica, the Diamond Years. The movie will be shown in Italian with English subtitles.

The movie is free for AICC Members and students with a valid university or high school ID and for non-members, the suggested donation is $5.
