Casomai
(If by Chance)
Directed by Alessandro D'Alatri (2002)

In honor of Valentine's Day, a film all about love and
marriage; part romantic comedy and part social
commentary. Stefania (Stefania Rocca) and Tommaso
(Fabio Volo) want to have a special wedding. At
Stefania's childhood church they meet a priest who
rises to the challenge. The film transports the viewer
through the beauty of love but also the darker
challenges of marriage: the potential loss of
togetherness, temptations, interference of others. An
entertaining and meaningful look at modern Italy
through the eyes of sophisticated, urban Thirty
Somethings. 114 minutes. In Italian with English
subtitles.

Oh My God!
I have been looking for a Rosina Quilici. I am wondering if Rosina Modelo was Rosina Quilici. She was quite active during the 1920's to the 1950's.
Does anyone have any information on a Rosina Quilici.
Nancy Quilici
