This week’s Half-price eBook of the Week offer is B1 intermediate-level ‘Roma città aperta‘, an ‘easy reader’ ebook based on a classic Italian movie.
Read/listen to it and you’ll improve your Italian comprehension skills, but better still, it’s a great way into watching and understanding the gist of an actual Italian movie!
There’s a restored version of this 1945 classic on Youtube: Roma città aperta (1945). You could just go watch it, of course, so spend nothing. But work with our ‘easy reader’ first and you’ll get more from the movie…
N.b. We have seventeen other ‘easy reader’ ebooks based on classic Italian movies. Why not take a look? (Those aren’t half-price, though.)
So, what’s Roma città aperta about??
This moving masterpiece of Italian neo-realism, set in WW2 Rome, tells the story of how resistance leader Giorgio, along with his friends, neighbours and family members, fight the Nazi forces occupying their city.
