The Anna Magnani Awards Ceremony - Tonight at Cinecittà Studios

Today's edition of Italy's newspaper Il Messaggero features my favorite Roman street art with an article about an awards ceremony that is taking place this evening at the Cinecittà studios in Rome.

Carlo Verdone, Valeria Solarino, Vinicio Marchioni, Oscar Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo are the recipients of the 5th edition  Anna Magnani Award. The ceremony will take place this evening, April 23rd, at the Fellini Hall in Cinecittà.

The award, which is dedicated to the memory of the great Italian actress was conceived by Matteo Persica, author of the book Anna Magnani, Biography of a Woman, and is a group effort by the likes of  Francesca Piggianelli, president of Romarteventi, with the collaboration of Luce Cinecittà, the support of the Rome Lazio Film Commission, the sponsorship of the Cinema-MiBACT General Management, the Lazio Region, the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, the Cinecittà Panalight and with the support of the Associazione Equilibra.
