UCAA Pubquiz 2018

UCU Alumni during the UCAA pubquiz 2018

The 2018 edition of the UCAA PubQuiz was a huge success, with the team G5 forever outcompeting all of their competitors to take home the title and a two-liter bottle of special beer. Curious if you could have hung in there? Then give a shot at these questions, the first one was a favourite of our quizmaster Will and the second was the one question that no single team managed to get correct. 

a. Which pop culture icon, who passed away on September 13th 1996, was named after the last indigenous king of the Inca Empire and drew his alias from the Florentine author of The Prince

b. This Italian director, born in Bologna five months before Benito Mussolini’s March on Rome, won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival for his 1964 work Il vangelo secondo Matteo (The Gospel According to Matthew).

Answers:
a.  Tupac Shakur 
b. Pier Paolo Pasolini

If you got one or both of these correct, then make sure you're there next year for the 2019 edition!
