Textiles, Fashion and the Milanisti


This Wednesday (4th July 2018) the documentary THE LORD OF MILAN will premiere at the Broadway Cinema in Nottingham, England and for fans of football, or should that be calcio, this is a screening not to be missed.

Back in 2016 author Robert Nieri penned a fictional story based on the facts of the life and times of a young Nottingham textile worker named Herbert Kilpin. Nothing too extraordinary there you might think, but young Herbert left his home country in search of something more and would end up being one of the founding members of Associazione Calcio Milan – that’s right the A.C. Milan that all football fans know of today. 

Now LeftLion Media have adapted it into a documentary, their debut feature, covering what happened and what it means to the fans and (ex) players of the team.

Find out more about the documentary and the book over on the Facebook page and official Twitter account.

This particular screening will delve deeper into the Anglo-Italian connection thanks to the additional screening of the short film TWO HEARTS ONE SOUL which takes a look at the relationship between Notts County and Juventus supporters. Going beyond more than just a simple gesture of providing a kit.

To book your seats for this screening please visit the Nottingham Broadway website.

Please note that other independent cinemas across the world may also be screening this documentary. Check your local listings for more details.
