London, December 2014 – For the first time the comedy “Song’e Napule” by Manetti Bros will be screened in London. The UK Premiere of the film will take place at Genesis Cinema (93-95 Mile End Rd, London E1 4UJ. Best Tube Stepney Green) on Sunday 14 December 6:30pm, followed by a Q&A (tickets: http://goo.gl/x0o5af, Trailer )

The film has been recently reviewed as “a genial musical caper that is admirably played by a fine ensemble” by Empire online. The main actor Giampaolo Morelli is very famous in Italy.

The CinemaItaliaUK season achieves a growing audience: +50% in the last two screenings (160 seats for “Spaghetti Story” in October, 240 for “Smetto Quando Voglio” last 30th of November, photogallery http://cinemaitaliauk.co.uk/#gallery).

The director Clara Caleo Green says: “Our formula is catching: new films already famous in Italy but not distributed in the UK yet, English subtitles, Q&A with actors and film directors hosted by journalists, delicious tasting of Italian wine and regional food afterwards”.

At the end of the screening, spectators will taste wine kindly offered by Sarah Eti Castellani Consul of Italy and will have a bite of typical focaccia from Liguria made by Donna Fugassa.


Every month a contemporary Italian film with English subtitles
