ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
29th November at 7pm
5 Puriri Street, Riccarton
From the President:
I would like to invite you all to come along to the Dante on Wednesday 29th November at 7pm for our Annual General Meeting and our end-of-year festa.
At the AGM we need to elect officers and committee members for 2018. It would be wonderful to have some new people to join us on the committee. It isn’t very onerous – about 4-5 meetings over the year. We would love to have your new energy on board and help us plan for a lively programme of events for the Dante in 2018. So come along and put your hand up!
After the AGM, please join us for a glass of prosecco and some wonderful nibbles which will be provided.
CineDante was not held on 8th November
but will be combined with our AGM on 29th November at 7pm
at St. Ninian’s, 5 Puriri Street, Riccarton.
When Italy Ate in Black and White
(Quando l’Italia mangiava in bianco e nero)
Directed by Andrea Gropplero di Troppenburg
Documentary, Italy 2014, 20 minutes
How did the concept of nutrition, cooking and friendliness change over the last 90 years? How does the food on our plate influence our quality of life? Is the idea of 'good food' changing? This well-documented journey between the traditional recipes of the regional cuisine and the black and white images from the Instituto Luce’s Archive tries to explore the eating habits and customs of the Italians throughout the years. Quando l’Italia magiava in bianco e nero is a tasty trip between dishes, kitchens, testimonies and funny stories from personalities of entertainment and culture.
