    (ANSAMED) - AMMAN, OCTOBER 12 - The Jordan Capital will host from October 16th to October 18th 2017 the XVII edition of the "Italian Language Week in the World". This year's theme of the Event will be " italian at cinema, Italian within the cinema".

    The opening evening will see the extraordinary participation of one of the most important characters in the Italian cinema and television scenario: the actor, screen player and director Pier Francesco Diliberto, known as Pif. The Sicilian artist will inaugurate at the Zara Centre in Amman the Week of the Italian language, organized by the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in more than 120 Countries all over the World.

    Pif will propose to the Jordanian public his last film " In Guerra per Amore" ( At War for Love) released in 2016 and presented in preview at the Rome Film Festival the same year and distributed in the Italian cinemas from October 27th 2016.

    For the second appointment of the event on the 17th October, there will be the Documentary Film directed by Luisa Porrino " I wear the veil, I love the Queen" in which the every- day life of three young Muslim Women shed a light over the prejudices and stereotypes that limit the understanding of a multifaceted Culture like the Islamic one, favouring the mutual comprehension and inter-cultural integration.

    The concluding evening, finally, will be presented the film " Have Nice Dreams" ( 2016) directed by Marco Bellocchio and inspired by the auto biographical novel written by Massimo Gramellini. The main character, played by Valerio Mastrandrea, lives in a very well described frame of the socio- economical changes Italy has been through in the last thirty years, analyzed both by the eyes of a child and a war journalist, with a final dramatic plot twist linked to the main character's personal troubles for his mother's death.
