Live “Monologue” Performance


Script by Aldo Nicolaj

Directed by Vittorio Capotorto

Starring Arisael Rivera

Presented by ItalyTheater

You are cordially invited to attend a screening of the classic film “Divorce Italian Style”, the masterpiece of Italian cinema starring Marcello Mastroianni, and a live “monologue” performance of Aldo Nicolaj's “The Man From the South” at the Italian American Museum on Friday, September 26th.

About the film:

Baron Ferdinando Cefalù (Marcello Mastroianni) longs to marry his nubile cousin Angela, but one obstacle stands in his way: his fatuous and fawning wife, Rosalia. His solution? Since divorce is illegal, he will devise a scenario wherein he can catch his spouse in the arms of another and murder her to save his honor-a lesser offense.

Divorce Italian Style is a comedy milestone–a brilliant, biting satire that was originally conceived as a drama; directed with nonstop inventiveness by a filmmaker who had never done comedy; and featuring an actor who, though not even among the first dozen players considered, cemented his international stardom with this performance. The movie also marked a breakthrough for foreign film in America, winning popular as well art-house success, Academy Award nominations for director Pietro Germi and star Marcello Mastroianni, and–the first of only a few foreign-language films to do so–the Oscar itself for Original Screenplay.

Friday, September 26, 7:30 P.M.
