Italy once again recaptured the heart of Adelaide through the annual Italian Film Festival, held from 25th of October through to the 5th of November, at the Palace Nova East End Cinemas in Rundle Street, Adelaide.

The Consul of Italy, Dott. Tommaso Coniglio, officially opened the Festival, underlining that cinema is an important part of Italian culture, and as such the Consulate and the Italian Embassy in Canberra are proud to sponsor this event.

Present at the opening night were many members of the Italian community and lovers of Italian culture.
The Premier was represented by the Hon. Carmel Zollo, Minister for Emergency Services and Mental Health, and the Leader of the Opposition by Mr David Pisoni, Member for Unley.

Once again the Festival featured the very best of contemporary Italian cinema, selected from the Venice, Rome, Cannes and Berlin Festivals. The Festival was officially launched with the screening of the movie Manuale d’Amore 2, directed by Luigi Veronesi, with Carlo Verdone and Monica Bellucci.

South Australians’ love affair with Italian cinema can continue with a series of movies to be titled “Italy in 35 mm: Italian Cultural awareness course”, to be screened at the Adelaide University, with the opening night on the 29th November 2007, and organized by the Dante Alighieri Society of South Australia.
