About This Event

Set in Italy’s Veneto region during the last months of the First World War, Noi eravamo (“We were”) recounts the stories of the sons and daughters of Italian emigrants who returned to volunteer as pilots and nurses in Italy’s struggle against the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This film was inspired by Fiorello La Guardia, the son of Italian emigrants, who was among the volunteers who came to fight in Europe, flying the famous Caproni planes, and who later became one of the most famous mayors of New York City. 

 

The Festival del cinema italiano is sponsored by the Center for Italian Culture with the generous support of the Italian Consulate General in Boston.
