Screening of "Andrea Doria. Are the Passengers Saved?" (2016) by Luca Guardabascio (77 minutes)

Producer Pierette Simpson and photographer Richard Haskin in attendance!

On July 25, 1956, the Italian passenger liner Andrea Doria was broadsided by the ship Stockholm near Nantucket Island. Pierette, a 9-year-old Italian girl emigrating to America with her grandparents, was among the 1660 survivors of the most catastrophic sea collision in peacetime history. For the 60th anniversary, Pierette returns to her native village of Pranzalito to document on film the hidden truth surrounding the tragedy. Interviews with survivors and naval experts throughout Italy and the U.S. are accompanied by re-enactments of Pierette’s departure from her village and her arrival to the New World. Archival footage from the Ansaldo shipyard accompanies the narration by some survivors and naval experts.

 

Free and open to the public.

Reservations kindly requested.

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.
