Valerie Barrett, Giulio Vita and Sara Frattini founders of La Guarimba festival


In the February 6, 2014 edition of L’Italo-Americano, we published the story of three young community organizers hopeful of bringing their grassroots Calabrese film festival, La Guarimba, to life in cities across America.


We’ve just received word that a showing space in San Francisco has graciously been offered by the Istituto Italian di Cultura and that the event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 19, 2014


Grazie mille to our readers; let’s continue working together to bring vibrant cultural events to our communities! For more information:
