The Neville Public Museum
International Film Series: A Special Day20-Mar-2019
From director Ettore Scola: Rome 1930’s. It's a national holiday in Italy for the first state visit of Adolf Hitler to the country. The occasion is marked by a lavish parade with both Hitler and Mussolini to celebrate their political friendship and alliance in the name of fascism. Most of the Roman populace will attend the parade to celebrate with their leader. Antoinette (Sophia Loren), a resigned housewife, and Gabriele, (Marcelo Mastrioanni) a persecuted journalist, will not attend, however, out of protest.
