Upcoming Events

The March Monthly Meeting take place this Thursday, March 8th, at the cinema of La Misericordia church at Piazza Porta Castiglione. This exceptional event also happens to be on International Women's Day and is open to the public - bring a friend or two! The event will be in the format of a mini film festival where GVC, a Bologna-based NGO whose work extends internationally, will present two documentaries highlighting women in Tunisia entitled Eco de Femmes and Blooms in the Concrete (see here for description). The screening will be followed by a presentation by Nada Ziwawi, GVC project manager connected to the films. Opening greetings and aperitivo will begin at 7pm and the documentary screening at 7:30pm. To access the cinema, go past the gates between La Misericordia church and the entrance of Giardini Margherita, all the way to the back of the driveway and you will find the cinema on your right. In order to help GVC continue fulfilling women’s projects around the world, a suggested 5 euro donation is encouraged. 

Save the date for the April Monthly Meeting, scheduled to take place Thursday, April 19th. Details to follow.
