The Renaissance changed the world, a cultural revolution that promoted the rediscovery of classical, philosophy, literature, and art. It was about pushing the boundaries of what we know – and what we could achieve.
After many months of watching the sand roll down the main streets of Byron Bay, we are all looking forward to a semblance of normality and ‘getting amongst it.
Here’s a quick summary of events and things you can do now to replenish your soul.
In its 22nd year, the Italian film festival is currently showing until November 7 at the Palace Cinemas (link). It’s the most prominent Italian film festival globally, and this year Roberto Rossellini is honored in a retrospective. Don’t miss the ‘Marriage Italian Style’ starring Sophia Loren, the 1964 classic.
It’s been a while since we could wear our dancing shoes on and have a boogie. But you may be a little out of practice – just sayin’.. ‘Dancing in the Dark’ is the perfect place to meet new people and get back into the groove.
