Lygon Street: Si Mangia Italiano

A celebration of Italian food, culture and history

Visit Cinema Nova, located on Carlton’s famed Italian strip, for a screening of LYGON STREET: SI PARLA ITALIANO – a delightfully entertaining homage to the Italians who changed the way Melbourne thought about food, drink and dining.

Sip a glass of Italian red wine, relish themed canapés and a gift bag as you enjoy a pre-feature discussion about the contribution European migrants made to Melbourne’s culture before a screening of the acclaimed documentary, which explores the history of Melbourne’s Italian community.

Discover the people, places and, of course, the pasta that made Carlton a cultural epicentre.

Narrated by AFI and Golden Globe winner Anthony LaPaglia.
