The Italian Cultural Institute, in collaboration with MHz Networks, presents a screening of Detective Montalbano, The Mud Pyramid by Alberto Sironi.

In his investigation of the murder of an accountant and the attempted murder of a bricklayer, Montalbano discovers a ring of corruption between construction companies and the Mafia. With acumen and courage he penetrates the impregnable “mud pyramid” and attempts to bring down the elaborate organization once and for all.

Italian actor Luca Zingaretti reprises his iconic role as Salvo Montalbano in the 28th episode of the international blockbuster series set in the fictional Sicilian city of Vigata. As the honest and independent police chief with a penchant for fine food, Montalbano balances the demands of his northern Italian superiors and the realities of small-town crime. The work brings him and his deputies across the paths of unforgettable, uniquely Sicilian characters.
