On Vittorio De Sicca’s birth anniversary, a scene from the fabulous Matrimonio all’Italiana. I’ve loved this movie since the very first time I saw it, back when I was about 13. My parents love it and I got to watch it on TV for the first time with them.

It was my introduction to Italian cinema from the 60s, to Vittorio De Sica and especially, to the fascinating team formed by bellissima Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.

I have adored this movie ever since, and its special place in my heart has grown with the addition of my own memories from yesteryear, when me and my family watched together, over and over again, the compelling drama of Filumena Marturano and her beloved Domé.
