Under the sign of star Banderas

Antonio Banderas‘Beauty Antonio’ with its Mediterranean charm is the star of the Hollywood gala opening event of summer. Yes, he, Antonio Banderas is the star of the opening, on July 12, the thirteenth edition of the Ischia Global Film & Music Fest produced by Pascal Vicedomini: Spanish actor and producer was awarded the Ischia Legend Award. It is a choice that gives an additional character in the international jet set to highlight of Ischia, already rich with glamor.

Banderas will be 55 in August, and is the interpreter of Picasso in the next biopic signed by Carlos Saura entitled “33 Dias”, and celebrates in Ischia a global popularity: he is the most beloved Latin actor in Hollywood. In his honor is planned a series of special screenings, which will assist an exceptional parterre maintained by the owner of the hotel of Regina Isabella hosting the event, Mr. Giancarlo Carriero, president of the International Art Ischia promoting event.

The award to Banderas is also explained by his extraordinary career marked by about 90 films and a remarkable eclecticism. Who can forget his performance in “Zorro”, or his engaging talent in dance and song proved in "Evita" by Alan Parker next to Madonna? However, his value has demonstrated many times, such as in “Take the Lead” and then as a director, and in the dubbing. In short, 30 years of success accumulated since 1982 when Pedro Almodovar discovered him, for a strong personality who, as few can boast a flawless path.
Antonio is a legend and a driver for European players who, relying on their own culture and identity in Latin America have conquered the world of cinema. In short, he is an example. In addition to the films of Picasso, with Gwyneth Paltrow, Banderas has just shot “Altamira” by British director Hugh Hudson, along with Rupert Everett, and is been among the protagonists of “Knight of Cups” by Terrence Malick, starring Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, and Cate Blanchett.
The roundup of Global will be enhanced by other super guests, global icons as tenor Andrea Bocelli, for the fourth time at the festival; and Italian-American anchorman Jimmy Kimmel, who will receive the “Platinum Telegatto” of the magazine TV Sorrisi e Canzoni that celebrates, in this way, the return of an award made in Italy. However, it is not all: there are also awards for Caterina Caselli (Ischia Legend Award) as “Italian excellence in the world”; and for director Matteo Garrone (Fantasy Award), to the recent “The story of stories”.
Among the most anticipated appearances, even that of the “lady of the Oscars”, Cheryl Boone Isaacs, 66, president of the Academy, the first African-American and third woman in history to fill the role that was also of Bette Davis; and Neil Portnow, president of the Grammy. There is a curiosity, finally, that the US regards the brilliant presenter Jimmy Kimmel, who is participating for the first time at the Global also a bit to look for his roots: his mother, of the Iacono’s family was in fact originally from Casamicciola.
