Film Series: “Miracle in Milan” aka “Miracolo a Milano”
March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join the American Italian Cultural Center for its screening of Miracle in Milan. This 1951 Vittorio De Sica film co-written with Cesare Zavattini is based on his novel Totò il Buono. A neo-realist fable, Miracle in Milan follows the life of Totò, an abandoned baby adopted by Lolotta, a kind old woman. After Lolotta’s death, Totò is sent to an orphanage. Once he turns 18, Totò moves to a shanty town outside of Milan and is given a magic dove by the ghost of Lolotta.
The film screening is free for AICC members and students with a valid university or high school ID, and a suggested donation of $10 for non-members.
