"A stellar yet wise career, which starts from Città di Castello and from our comedy, and allows itself to be enhanced by great authors such as FrancisFord Coppola and Giuseppe Tornatore, immediately becoming international, with the addition of the devotion of French cinema on its side '', declares Piera Detassis, President and Artistic Director of the Academy of Italian Cinema. '' The David Speciale to Monica Bellucci - continues Detassis - recognizes her unique beauty but above all the ability to gamble and provocation, as in the case of Irréversible, alternating recognized directors with young novices or innovators and almost always choosing the momentum ofauthor, from Wachowski to Virzì, from Sam Mendes to Maria Sole Tognazzi, from TerryGilliam to Kusturica, from Claude Lelouch to Kaouther Ben Hania.
Bellucci embodies the rare ability to be a global icon, without losing sight of the creative work and the artistic community.
Charismatic, cosmopolitan and at the same time deeply Italian ".
