The festivities will showcase our 2013 Fellows and Filmmaker Resident. We will also celebrate Federico Fellini's masterpiece La Strada and its 60th anniversary. Art auction items will be on display at both the event and in a preview show at Caffe Torino (see below). We will also hold a raffle and silent auction, serve a delicious table of antipasti prepared by our Board Directors and Members, and host an Italian and domestic wine bar. The raffle prize is a seven night stay at the Civita Institute houses for two.
