Paolo Rotondo new movie 'Orphans & Kingdoms', and help us bring a part of Italian and New Zealand history to world.
Orphans & Kingdoms 2014
"Il mio Film Orphans & Kingdoms farà parte del New Zealand international film festival," Says Paolo. "Il compositore e venuto dall’Italia per registrare degli stupendi pezzi classici e corali. Quindi con un regista-sceneggiatore italiano e un compositore Italiano si potrebbe dire che il film e quasi una coproduzione."

But there is more from this talented Italian Kiwi:
The Theatre production Strange Resting Places has been invited to represent New Zealand at the Edinburg Fringe Festival, regarded as the most important Theatre Festival in the world, and needs fundings to be able to attend. Strange Resting Places is about the meeting of Italians and the Maori Battalion in WW2, click here to watch a few extracts from this wonderful show, and if you like what to see please make a donation and help bring both theatre and an important part of Italian and New Zealand history to world.

Dante members can now enjoy Giapo Haute Ice Cream, the best gelato in Auckland, with a 10% discount! Just present your Dante card next time you are in store!
|The best gelateria in town!|
Giapo's creative mind is Gianpaolo Grazioli, and we all agree that his ice creams have no equals! Some Italian favorites are Tiramisù, nocciola (hazelnut) and pistacchio (no need to translate that), but there are many more flavours to chose from, and some are truly innovative. Once your selection has been made (usually after a few tastings) your ice cream is topped with elaborated and thoughtful decorations customized for each flavour, and from then on every spoonful (or lick) is a delight! . Of course the Dante team had to taste a 'few' flavours, for research purposes, before writing all this!

Our walk last Sunday was great, the sun shone and even if the tracks were a little (just a little) hard at times we were rewarded with great views at the top!
Massimo lead us to the Hau Hau track going up, and the Coman on the way down.
You can see the Karekare circuit here.
Going up and up...
… and coming down
Back to Karekare!
See you at the next event on Monday: Festa della Repubblica!
