Werner Herzog & The ItaliansFriday, September 08, 2006

Incredible as it might sound the largest cultural presence in Vancouver is that of Italy through its wonderful Istituto Italiano di Cultura. You would think perhaps that it would be the Americans or even the English. I have gone to many fine concerts, lectures and exhibitions hosted by the Italians. I feel indebted to them for so much pleasure. My fave was when they brought Vittorio Gassman (upper right).
