Ciao a tutti,
This week, we held a movie screening of ‘Cinema Paradiso’ in UCC. The unpredictable weather didn’t put a damper on the event; the students’ love for great films and authentic Italian cuisine brought everyone together for an enjoyable Thursday night in. Our promise of free pizza was fulfilled in good faith and we all enjoyed our fill of some very tasty pizza, courtesy of Pizzamore, College Road, Cork. We were impressed with the variety of pizza that Pizzamore provided, and everyone left in good spirits – even if a few pounds heavier! 😉 Complimenti e grazie, Pizzamore! You have reignited our love for handmade Roman pizza and we’ll be back soon.
We hope that those who came along for the movie night were entertained. We have more events planned for the remainder of the semester so we hope to see you again soon. As always, keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates.
UCC Italian Society.
Tuesday, 14th January saw Societies Day Part II take place on the campus of UCC. The vitality of the students, the array of colours and the vast turnout of the societies was a refreshing addition to campus life, even for those few short hours during which the event took place. Despite the showery, chilly backdrop, both the societies and students alike made a special effort to brave the weather and spend the day outdoors. Their efforts were not unnoticed or unrewarded, as the day proved to be the ideal opportunity to meet new people, join new societies and catch up with friends and other members.
Our society had a particularly exciting time during the day and met countless students (many of them part of the Erasmus program) with a passion for culture and languages – and good food! Thanks to The Boot for providing us with a very appetising spread once again. As you can see, the variety of cheeses, salami and ham did well to brighten up everyone’s day. Above all, it was especially rewarding to welcome brand new members to the society on the day. We are so looking forward to meeting everyone again!
Speaking of which – we have an opportunity to do just that! On Thursday 16th January, UCC Italian Society will be hosting a social night, especially for Italian Erasmus students to meet and get to know the Irish students here in UCC. We’ll be kicking off the evening in the Franciscan Well (North Mall, Cork) at 8:30 p.m. Everybody is welcome, so feel free to bring your friends and have a relaxing evening with other students! Further details can be found here.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on our regularly updated Facebook and Twitter pages. Hope to see you all tomorrow!
P.S. We almost forgot to tell you that it’s pizza night at the Fran Well on Thursdays… You’re going to go now, aren’t you?
