“Welcome Venice” to be screened online in Ireland
Publication date: April 15 2022
Tipology: Diplomatic Network
The screening of the film “Welcome Venice”, directed by Andrea Segre, will take place – following the initiative of the Italian Cultural Institute of Dublin – on Monday 18 April. The film will be shown in Italian, with English subtitles.
“Welcome Venice” is about two men, Pietro and Alvise, heirs of a family of fishermen on Giudecca island, in the Venetian lagoon. They quarrel over what should be done with their family house. It is a reflection on the increasingly deep impact that global tourism has had on Venice, altering the very relationship between the Venetian citizens and the city, between house and life – something that the pandemic has further exposed. The film portrays the world’s most unique city as a “home”.
It will be possible to view it, free of charge, on the website “MyMovies per gli IIC” starting from 2:00 pm of 18 April, for 24 hours. Access will be limited to a maximum of 500 entries per screening and only for users who connect from Ireland.
