6/27/2018 - Premio Nino Manfredi to Claudia Gerini
After the award for the first 40 years of career to Massimo Ghini, the National Syndicate of Italian film Journalists announces another recognition that will be awarded Saturday, June 30 at the Teatro Antico in Taormina during the awards ceremony of the Ribbons of silver. We speak of the Premio Nino Manfredi, which this year will go to Claudia Gerii, who takes the baton from Pierfrancesco Favino, winner in 2017.There are two titles that deliver the award Nino Manfredi-awarded with the family of the great Nino-the Roman actress: Ammo and Underworld and at home all good. Thanks to the first film, the Gerii won both the David di Donatello and the Golden take for Best supporting actress. The family melodrama of Gabriele Muccino has instead fruited the Silver Ribbon Special for the best cast, shared with his companions of set."With the journalists of the Union we decided to assign this year the Manfredi prize to Claudia Gerini "- says Erminia Manfredi, who will deliver the recognition with her niece Sarah Masten- "precisely because of her versatility, a dowry that in her has always hit. From the theatre to the cinema Claudia has shown to represent the true sense of the artist who knows how to excite and transmit pathos. She showed it recently on stage with his stories of Claudia, directed by Giampiero Solari, where she plays, dances and sings. Just like in the wonderful interpretation in ammo and underworld of Manetti Bros. That has successfully alternated this year with the intense performance in Muccino's film. Yes, Claudia is a real talent.
