Don’t miss our movie night! Tomorrow at 5:30 in the Italian House 🙂
Ciao a tutti,
I hope you enjoyed the snacks and the movie!
I was happy to see students involved in the Italian program and the friends of the Italian house together again.
Gino Bartali or “Ginetaccio”, as he was called (for my students or those familiar with the Italian suffixes, the meaning should be clear) is the protagonist of the documentary that we screened yesterday.
He is a really national hero in two ways: as sport man (having won the Giro d’Italia three times and the Tour the France twice) and because he was recognized as a “Righteous Among the Nations” by Yad Vashem for his efforts to aid Jews during the second world war.
If you want more information about him, here, you can find an entire radio episode about him.
Also, there is a nice song about him by Paolo Conte. Do you want hear it?
Attend the screening of this incredible documentary about Italy’s cycling champion and hero Gino Bartali!
