The impeccably manicured secret garden of Molito Alabang, the high-end strip mall located at the corners of Madrigal and Commerce Avenues just outside the exclusive Ayala Alabang Village, will soon provide a picturesque setting for Un Weekend all’Italiana. With the cooperation of La Società Dante Alighieri Comitato di Manila (SDA Manila) and with the support of the Italian Chamber of Commerce, Molito Alabang will be the venue for a selection of beautiful and classic Italian movies this August 6 & 7—accompanied, of course, by selections of Italian-inspired food and beverage from Molito’s dining establishments.
Some sublime classic films such as Il Postino and La Dolce Vita will be shown through an outdoor cinema, a first time initiative for Molito Alabang, whose scenic vistas are a fond destination for families, couples, and individuals, both local and foreign. The clean crisp air, accessibility to the surrounding residences, and wide array of food and beverage all combine to provide elegant entertainment that suits the lifestyles of the discerning and refined. Guests of all ages are encouraged to visit the mini-film festival to soak up—or, in fact, to reminisce about—some canonical Italian culture, either in the comfort of each of the surrounding dining establishments or in the fresh air of the garden. Children can play in the fountain with its multicolored lights, and adults can comfortably sip wines or beers or dine on all sorts of cuisine, from the Italianesque to straightforward Asian.
