Celebrate Italy’s Labor Day With Pizza & A Movie At The ICCC

Piola pizza

BYOB and be prepared for a fun night. Bring wine that pairs well with pizza to the Italian Cultural & Community Center (1101 Milford Drive, 713-524-4222), located near Bell Park off Montrose Boulevard, on Sunday, April 30, and celebrate Festa dei Lavoratori, or Italian Labor Day.

Once there, take in the hit Italian comedy “Quo Vado” inside the ICCC’s charming, historic Milford House and “caio” down on authentic Italian pizza from Piola; water and soft drinks also provided. The film is directed by Gennaro Nunziante, starring Italian comedian Checco Zalone. It follows a privileged young man, played by Zalone, who struggles to hang onto his cushy government job in the face of repeated government cutbacks. Note: The film is in Italian with English subtitles.

Doors open at 5 p.m., and the film starts at 5:30 p.m. Arrive early to mingle with the mixed crowd ranging from college students, to working professionals and retired folks. “We attract not only people that are Italian and speak the language, but we have attendees coming from all over the place who simply enjoy foreign movies,” says Erika Myers who is the programs and events director for ICCC.

Tickets must be pre-purchased and the capacity is 60 people. Seats are first come, first served. Tickets are $15 for ICCC Members and Students, and $20 Non-members. Tickets are available through Eventbrite.

    Sounds like a fun evening. A little change of pace and a chance to practice your Italian if you care to or just practice speed reading on the screen. You can’t beat a reason to enjoy a good Chianti.
