Italian Cultural Institute


In an apartment building in Rome, a surly young man named Lorenzo is involved in a crime, and it’s up to the residents to piece together what happened in this wide-ranging study of clashing cultures. One of the most deeply impacted inhabitants is Lorenzo’s brother, Marco, a burned-out lawyer who consistently questions his profession’s relationship with the truth. The unhappy Nurit, a judge from Iran seeking political asylum, similarly frets about truth and wonders if silence isn’t the better option. But when one occupant’s disguised nationality is revealed via a hidden passport, followed by the discovery of a valuable dog in the basement, the building dwellers find that speaking up and doing what is right often trump the validity of facts.


Light refreshments will be offered. Reservations kindly suggested.

Currently active in all the major cities of the five continents, the ninety Italian Cultural Institutes serve as an ideal meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and cultural operatives, as well as for ordinary citizens, both Italian and foreign, who wish to establish or maintain a relationship with our country. By acting not only as a showcase and source of current information on Italy, but also as a driving force behind initiatives and projects of cultural cooperation, the Italian Cultural Institute has become a focal point for both the Italian communities abroad and the growing demand for Italian culture throughout the world.

By extending the role of Embassies and Consulates, the Italian Cultural Institutes offer the most effective tools for promoting a worldwide image of Italy as a center of production, preservation, and dissemination of culture from the Classical Age until today. Along with organizing cultural events in a vast array of areas, including art, music, cinema, theatre, dance, fashion, design, and photography, the Italian Cultural Institutes:

  • Offer the opportunity to learn Italian language and culture through the organization of courses, the management of libraries and the preparation of educational and editorial materials;
  • Provide the networks and the premises to facilitate the integration of Italian operators in the process of cultural exchange and production at an international level;
  • Provide information and logistic support to public and private cultural operators, both Italian and foreign;
  • Continuously support initiatives aimed at promoting an intercultural dialogue based on the principles of democracy and international solidarity.
