With Vanessa Scalera we reward a very talented actress who in Giuseppe Bonito’s film was able to emphasize more than ever the strong character nuances of a woman, the victim of a difficult destiny, with a lot of heart, but also with a lot of firmness.

And it is a much loved actor like Edoardo Leo to receive the Nastri / Hamilton Behind the camera award. He received it for the exploit he gave us, in addition to interpretations, as an author and director not only with Leave a day in Rome, a great success on the platform and then in the cinema, but also for the direction of the documentary on Gigi Proietti.
