Wednesday, March 13, 2019. 9 am - 11:00 am Light Breakfast (coffee & cookies), Networking, and Presentation. History of the Italian Immigration Museum, 1834 E. Passyunk Avenue, Philadelphia, PA, 19148. "Wedged between Abruzzo and Puglia, Molise is really the last undiscovered region of Italy, unknown even to some Italians. In fact it is joked - Il Molise non esiste….

Having first visited as a child, the hometown of my grandfather made a strong impression on me. When I went back, grownup, with the idea of learning Italian, I discovered the Italy I had never found as a tourist. My huge affection for the small town of Agnone in particular, and in Molise in general, spurs me to share some of my experiences with other discerning travellers, eager to discover hidden gems." (Jenifer Landor)

The event is FREE OF CHARGE for all Filitalia members and $5 for non members. RSVP is required, so please reserve your ticket online.

Jenifer Landor began her career as an actress, working mostly in the UK where she trained and was educated, but also in the US, where she was born. Working extensively on stage in the UK, and on film and TV on both sides of the Atlantic, she later segued into film production, developing and co-producing several independent films.

In 2012 she went to learn Italian in the hometown of her grandfather – and discovered it was the perfect place; no tourists, and no one with whom to speak English. She decided to harness film production expertise and acting talent, and set about to create a bespoke language and culture program in Agnone, Alto Molise.

Working closely with the community, harnessing their talents and expertise, each season brings more to a unique experience, ‘off the beaten track’ in Italy.
