Premiere of the Award Winning Documentary Invisible Women Planned at Bella Fortuna North with author Jane Fortune

Great News!   We're having two Premier Parties.  

We've had a wonderful response to our Invisible Women premier party -- so great that we quickly sold out and had a long waiting list.  So we've scheduled a second showing of Invisible Women at the restaurant on Tuesday, June 11.   If you couldn't join us on Monday, June 10, now you can come on Tuesday.  Reservations are still required, and we urge you to call quickly because we expect this one to sell out quickly as well.  To reserve just call the restaurant at 231-944-2400.

We'll celebrate the Emmy Award for the documentary Invisible Women, which was based on our co-owner Jane Fortune’s book, Invisible Women: Forgotten Artists of Florence, with a preview showing accompanied by complimentary appetizers and a Prosecco toast. There will be a short introduction by Jane followed by the showing of the documentary and culminating in a question and answer period.

The documentary received the coveted Emmy Award in the Historical and Cultural Program category.  Emmys, which are TV's equivalent of the Oscars, are given by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. 

For a snapshot of what the documentary is about, you can check out a trailer on YouTube.

Bringing attention to the often forgotten and ignored women artists of Florence has long been one of Jane’s passions. She’s taken a leading role in researching women artists in Florence, by uncovering their works, which are stored away, unseen, in various museums throughout the city, and raising funds for their restoration and exhibition.

The June 10 preview is booked.  The good news is that we are still open for dinner.  Jane will be in the restaurant, her books will be available for purchase and she’ll be happy to autograph them for you!  Or, you can purchase Invisible Women: Forgotten Artists of Florence through Amazon by clicking on this link.

Seats are still available for the July 1 special celebration dinner. Because we are limited to 50 guests, reservations are required.  To make reservations call the restaurant at 231-994-2400 or click here to submit a reservation online.
