Tonight, the Italian Film Festival is presenting the recent docu-essay, The Venice Syndrome, which examines how the historically and culturally significant Italian city is being overrun with tourists.
Ironically perhaps, the original screening venue has been changed in order to accommodate more viewers. Previously set for Posvar Hall, the film will now play at Pitt's Alumni Hall Auditorium (seventh floor), at 4227 Fifth Ave., Oakland. The film begins at 9 p.m., and admission is free.
