This is no ordinary show however; various playwrights put their individual pieces together to form a series of one-act plays around a central theme. However, each one-act play is directed by one of the other writers, not its original author. The show begins January 19th and will be running for three weeks.

Dining Out Special. Italian Restaurants for Winter

When winter comes with its chill and its darkness, so does that ancestral need of human beings to protect themselves from the cold, to protect each other. Togetherness is felt as a natural necessity and nothing brings people together more than food. One of the strongest symbolic representations of sharing, food has always brought Italian families together; its quasi-sacral liturgy—sitting together for supper and eating together during the holidays—is a long-lasting peculiarity of Italian culture.

The Reasons for Change

There is nothing wrong, of course, in following the Fathers’ prescriptions in favor of a republican (as opposed to democratic) form of government. But in this case the electors should not be constrained by their pledge when they meet. They should behave as free agents, independent thinkers, and deliberative representatives, not as mere delegates of their parties or even of their voters.Interestingly, in these very days a petition that has collected 5 million signatures is being circulated to this effect on the Internet.
