Prominent Italian Americans

Today’s session at Window on America center Dnipropetrovsk started with a cross-cultural topic  about “Prominent Italian Americans”. This topic was illustrated with a colorful book display about US entertainment celebrities and included documents about Madonna, S.Stallone, L.Di Caprio and others.
The slide show introduced famous American directors of Italian background. The movies by these directors from the WOA collection were presented to the club members.
Our American friend Sam was open to the conversation about the American movie industry and her favorite movies. The club members also asked her questions about her opinion on Ukrainian movies. They were asked to recommend the best Ukrainian productions to Sam, we hope she will enjoy the recommended films.
