Stage 32 Meetups : Come on Italians let's meet! by Francesca Tatini

Francesca Tatini

Come on Italians let's meet!

Hey, looks like we haven't had a Stage32 meetup yet... so how about FLORENCE, maybe on a saturday/sunday so everybody can reach the city?

Jennifer Norton

Yay Francesca! I agree, let's unite the Italian Stage 32 members!! I vote for Florence as a meeting place since we are both in Tuscany :-) I'll spread the word on my wall... meanwhile, let's pick a date! :-)

Francesca Tatini

Yay Jen! This post needed your energy! So let's do Florence :) I would pick the third or fourth week on November so we have time to get people involved!

Jennifer Norton

I may be teaching an acting workshop in Aquila the last weekend of Nov (all are invited!) so, if you're all right with it, let's go with the 3rd week in Nov! Should we do a week night or a weekend? How exciting!!

Francesca Tatini

Great! I'm up for both a week night or a weekend :) Let's see what florentines say!

Jennifer Norton

Right on. :-)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hi everyone - I will send out an email to all our members in the Florence area to get them on this thread :)

Francesca Tatini

Thank you Julie!!

Federica Moretti

I came from Lucca could I know if there are any meetings around this area? Also Florence, please. A nice day for everybody

Francesca Tatini

Hi Federica! We are organizing a meetup in Florence for the third week of November, let us know when it's better for you :)

Stefano Pratesi

Ciao Francesca. dovrei esserci fammi poi sapere quando.

Francesca Tatini

Ciao Stefano! There are people coming from out of Florence so I will let them step out and suggest a date :)

Federica Moretti

Ok so I suggest to do a meetup on 22nd of November for lunch. =)

Francesca Tatini

Sounds great! We'll book a nice place as soon as we know the number of participants :)

Mara Bordigoni

ok. it's great.

Federica Moretti

It's ok for me

Mark Abouzeid

i will be in rome shooting over that weekend, so works for me!

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Can one of you take the lead and make a Stage 32 Tuscany sign? We'd love you to take a group photo holding the sign (it can be a computer printout :)) so we can feature you on our Stage 32 blog :)

Francesca Tatini

Allright so let's meet on Saturday 15th! @Mark: this meetup is in Florence can you join us there? @Julie sure we'll make a picture with the Tuscany sign :)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Thanks Francesca...you rock!

Mark Abouzeid

I will have to miss out this time. I am meeting interview subjects from Lebanon in Rome that weekend. I can any other weekend.

Jennifer Norton

Mark if we end up meeting on the 15th and you aren't there... can I hold a photo of you in the group photo? Or somehow represent you so you're included?

Mark Abouzeid

Actually, it may work out. I may come to the meeting, teach my class and leave for Rome. That way I have sunday and monday in Rome to video when they are relaxed. In fact, I can take the group photo, if everyone wants!

Francesca Tatini

This is great Mark! And thank you for taking the group photo :) We can meet for an early lunch so you have time to reach Rome later. Everybody ok with 11:30 am?

Mark Abouzeid

That's great!

Francesca Tatini

Sure we welcome people coming with you! Just let us know so we can book for everybody. We can pick a place near Santa Marie Novella so it's easier for arriving and leaving :)

Federica Moretti

For me it's the same thing of Lorenzo. For me a place near Santa Maria Novella is perfect. I'll came by the train. If I can I'd also like bring one friend.

Francesca Tatini

No problem Lorenzo and Federica! We'll find a place that is right for everybody :)

Betsy Burke

I would love to attend. However, there's a slight chance I'll be in Berlin for the film festival from the 10 - 17. We have a film there. If it falls through, I'll try to make the Florence meeting.

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Hi everyone! While you are at the meetup and if you are on twitter, can you upload photos to #Stage32rocks so we feel like we are there with you? :)

Stage 32 Staff - Julie

Thanks Lorenzo! As RB says "Creativity is Universal"... We just started using #stage32rocks and our Sydney group just posted their meetup yesterday: https://twitter.com/hashtag/stage32rocks

Jennifer Norton

Hello everyone! Francesca and I thought we'd make some suggestions as options for places to have our meet up this weekend as we find it hard to decide for everyone. We tried to find several diverse options- please let us know what you like! A) Trattoria Carabaccia (near SMN & vegetarian friendly, but opens at 12 for lunch) http://www.trattorialacarabaccia.com/ B) Caffé degli Artigiani (veggie friendly and a room reserved for us, but a 15 minute walk from SMN) http://caffedegliartigiani.wordpress.com/ C) Trattoria Maria (near central market, no reservations allowed, open at 12 for lunch) http://trattoria-mario.com/Site-2013/index.php (And 1 more just to confound things!) D) There's also The Central Market, (which can be fun, has a wide variety of food choices- but is noisy... http://www.mercatocentrale.it/

Jennifer Norton

Of course if anyone wishes to suggest other options- please do!

Mark Abouzeid

caffe degli artigiani...then we can take the group photo in front of Santo Spirito Church!

Federica Moretti

I vote for A & B, so "Caffè degli Artigiani" is perfect for me =)

Jennifer Norton

Okay I will stop by there later tonight or tomorrow morning to make the reservation. We are approx 10 people, is that correct?

Federica Moretti

Sorry Jennifer I'm not with +1, differently from I said the last time.

Francesca Tatini

Hi! Thanks to Jen we have a reservation at "Cafè degli Artigiani" for tomorrow at 12:00. There's a room for us at the first floor. If you prefer to meet at Santa Maria Novella and walk there together just let us know and we can arrange a pick up time :)

Federica Moretti

Lorenzo and Francesca is the same for me. If my train is on time, I will be at SMN at 10.50. Get me one meeting point where I can find you to going to Cafè degli Artigiani together.

Francesca Tatini

I'm also arriving at 10:50 if my train is on time, we can meet in front of the drug store near platform 16 ok?

Jennifer Norton

I'll be waiting for you guys at Artigiani! :-) See you tomorrow- safe trip to all!

Francesca Tatini

Hi Federica, we can't see you here we're going to to caffè degli artigiani, post here if you need help to reach the place :)

Federica Moretti

Hi francesca! Ok, my train arrive at 11.55; see you later

Francesca Tatini
