CLASSY ITALIANS ONLY
Move over, San Gennaro. There's a new heritage fest in town, and it's out to prove that Italians aren't all meatball-eating guidos. La Lupa Italian Cultural Arts Festival combines both the contemporary and traditional arts into a boot-shaped cornucopia of culture, including dance performances; poetry readings; short-film screenings; the folk music of southern Italy by MUSICANTICA; scenes from original one-act plays by Italian and Italian-American playwrights; excerpts from Franco D'Alessandro's play Roman Nights , about Tennessee Williams' relationship with actress Anna Magnani; a children's program with Pinocchio performed in verse; and Italian language lessons. Food, too; probably meatballs.
Sat., May 15, 8 p.m.; Sun., May 16, 7 p.m., 2010
