Although he has an extensive filmography, Cinema Paradiso is his biggest accomplishment.

Although no certain information exists about this simple, but tasty dish, it is possible that it may derive from โ€œ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ผ๐˜๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐—ฎ ๐—ฆ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฎโ€, so called from the word "sbirri", cops or guards of the Serenissima, French and then Austrian, who used to steal chickens when they passed through the countryside to prepare this dish. โ€œRisi e tochiโ€ translates in ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ธ๐˜€, of chicken to be specific. ๐Ÿ”

Another reference about this recipe can be found in Pellegrino Artusiโ€™s famous book in which he mentions the rice that a hostess from Polesella, a town near Rovigo, prepared for him using a free-range chicken - cut in pieces - she just grabbed from her yard.

According to Carla this dish was created because meat was expensive, and to make sure there would be enough to eat for everyone, the rice was added to the chicken. Whatever the story may be, wouldnโ€™t it be worth trying it? We think we shouldโ€ฆ

Podolica is a type of breed of grey domestic cattle from Southern Italy capable of surviving on harsh terrain and poor pasture, and usually raised for meat and rarely kept for milk. Caciocavallo is a mature stretched curd cheese usually in the shape of a giant pear made with cow's milk and the addition of enzymes, rennet and salt. For its conservation it is tied around the neck in pairs and hung to season. Back in the days it was hung around the neck of the horse to be transported, hence the name โ€œCaciocavalloโ€, which could literally translate into ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ผ=๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ฒ and ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น๐—ผ= ๐—ต๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ฒ!๐Ÿด๐Ÿง€

The Italian Cultural Society ended the Settimana della Lingua Italiana nel Mondo with a bang! As you can tell from the pictures, last Saturdayโ€™s Dante, Lโ€™Italiano event was filled with curiosity, enthusiasm, and fun! While the adults enjoyed an informative and inspiring lecture on Danteโ€™s works, the children were delighted to spend time learning about the poet through arts and crafts with maestra Fiorenza Castelli. Afterwards, the group took advantage of the perfect weather and indulged in a delicious merenda and aperitivo outside. Special thanks to Dr. Virginia Jewiss for presenting an intriguing interpretation of the poetโ€™s renown literature. Thank you to Women of Dartmouth for offering the event venue and to Istituto Italiano di Cultura Washington for collaborating to make this possible.
