Italian Film Festival USA: At War for Love

When: Wed., April 4, 7:30 p.m. 2018

It’s wartime in New York City in the 1940s. Kind and goofy Italian waiter Arturo, a Sicilian immigrant, falls in love with Flora, the daughter of a restaurant owner. Arturo and Flora dream of getting married, but her hand has already been promised to the son of a Mafia boss. Arturo needs the permission of Flora's father, who lives in Sicily. In order to get there, Arturo enlists in the U.S. Army during the period in which American forces are preparing an invasion of the island, an event that will change forever the story of Sicily, Italy, and the Mafia.
