  • As news of Franco Zeffirelli’s death reached I-Italy, we looked back at our past issues and found a photo taken by Zeffirelli’s adopted son, Giuseppe, of New Yorker Steve Acunto and his daughter, Claudia during a visit to the Maestro’s home in Rome in 2013. We invited Mr Acunto to remember the Maestro, recalling that Spring afternoon.
  • Valeria Golino just received the Federico Fellini Platinum Award during the 2019 edition of Bif&st, the Bari International Film Festival. We sat down with the internationally renowned actress and director who will be presenting “Portrait d’une jeune fille en feu,” a film by Celine Sciamma at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival. “I play my first ‘old lady’ part. Initially, I didn’t want to do this movie but Celine convinced me by saying that she couldn’t imagine any other actress in this role.” “I wanted to play the female leads in Hollywood but how could I compete with actresses such as Julia Roberts, Demi Moore and Uma Thurman?”
