Traditionally, war films tell only one side of the story—usually that of the victor. In the United States, where films from Hollywood dominate the box office and cultural conversations, the American point of view, both politically and socially, is most likely to be represented. All wars, however, share one commonality: the human experience. In this film series, explore movies about wars, both familiar and not, that provide new and alternate perspectives but are still united by the quest to illuminate the horror and heartbreak universal to the human experience of war. In Benigni's latest film as director, a love-struck Italian poet is stuck in Iraq at the onset of the American invasion.
Introduced by Stefano Albertini (NYU).

Italy is currently the #1 wine exporting and producing country in the world, as well as the most imported wine into the United States; a force in the wine world that is hard to ignore. Italy and its wines are often superficially and inaccurately taught, due to its huge complexity, incredible variety and unique peculiarities. Difficult to truly grasp, this complex scenario stems from its intricate and vast cultural background, heritage & history.
We of the North American Sommelier Association believe that only qualified native Italians are capable to deliver the concepts, transmit the true passion & romance, teach the facts and convey the texture of this country in an authentic, accurate and genuinely Italian manner. Indeed the course is designed around the exact curriculum and outline of the Italian Sommelier Association (AIS:http://www.sommelier.it/), as Italians themselves view their country and study it at university. It has been extracted and adapted to the American scene from the Sommelier course that takes place in Italy.
The founders and teachers of this now internationally recognized certification are also the very teachers that will take you on this compelling and exciting journey, from start to certification. All native Italian professional Sommeliers and active international educators, fluent in the English language and residing in North America.
