The SDIFF Gala 2017 will ignite your senses with the tantalizing flavors of Naples.

Good company, splendid music, and a delicious feast await you. Featuring Buona Forchetta’s Chef Matteo Cattaneo; BIGA’s Chef Tae Dickey; Civico 1845’s Chef Alfonso Pisacane; Piazza 1909’s Chef Stefano Ceresoli, your taste buds are sure to be delighted! Each chef is there not only to woo you with a Neapolitan specialty but to give you a burning desire to speak Neapolitan!


This is a line-up of champions, but there will be more in music, dolci, coffee, marvelous wines, wonderful pictures of a hidden Naples from Lamia Khorshid, and a charming romantic comedy set in Naples.

And of course great music, thanks to an ensemble of great artists:

Rosario Monetti (voice)
Carlos Velasco (guitar)

After the party, the SDIFF invites you to watch the comedy Troppo Napoletano, directed by Gianluca Asinelli. Troppo Napoletano is part of our special event.


Deborah worries for her eleven-year-old son, Ciro, who is exhibiting signs of depression.  Searching for a solution, Deborah takes Ciro to see Tommaso, a shy child psychologist. Ciro confesses that it’s not his father’s death that has got him down, it’s his love for his classmate, the beautiful Ludovica. The two make a deal: Tomasso will help Ciro to win the affections of Ludovica, while Ciro gives Tomasso a hand at having a chance with his mother. A nice comedy in the beautiful settings of Napoli.
