Cinema Vitti

Shavelson, La baia di Napoli (It started in Naples), 1960

When American lawyer Michael Hamilton (Clark Gable) hears that his estranged younger brother and sister-in-law have died in a car accident, he flies to Naples, Italy, to settle their estate. Upon arriving, the xenophobic Hamilton meets his impish nephew, Nando (Marietto), for the first time, and decides he will bring the boy back with him to the United States. But when Nando's gorgeous aunt, Lucia Curcio (Sophia Loren), protests, a lengthy and heated custody battle ensues.

Join also if you just want to say hi! :) Try not to forget our beautiful language. We will have the pleasure to meet Pietro Chioda, engineering student at Politecnico di Milano. Make sure to ask questions to him, general ones about his life, his studies, his family and the life in Milan. He will talk only in Italian and the questions need to be in Italian.
