From Your Pilgrimage and 100% Italian American Co-Host-Teresa Tomeo
Kelly provided some great reads in preparation for our upcoming pilgrimage. Now how about some great views or movies to watch related to Italy. While there are some great religious films, there are also some wonderfully delightful romance films that are among my favorites that will be sure to put you in an Italian frame of mind. We have just about two weeks before we take off for our Italian adventure. So grab the vino along with some popcorn sprinkled with grated parmesan and enjoy the views. Viva Italia!
· Francis of Assisi: Starring then Delores now Mother Delores Hart. According to Mother Delores her experience in portraying St. Claire changed her forever and impacted her decision to go into the religious life.
· Roman Holiday: A classic and my all- time favorite film starring Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn. Rome will never be the same after seeing this film.
· Letters to Juliet: Since we are Tuscany bound for part of our pilgrimage this film will really get you in the mood to see enjoy the rolling hills of this stunning Italian region. It’s a darling movie and a great chick flick.
· Only You: Marissa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr. light up the screen in this love story that takes us from the romantic streets of Rome’s Trastevere region to the beautiful Amalfi Coast. The real star however is the scenery.
Looking forward to journeying with you,
