20 August #Giffoni50

The Neapolitan oncologist, symbol of the pandemic, says to the masterclass Impact: “Young people are determinant for research. Just by exchanging views, ideas can improve”. The documentary “1+1=3” by Romano Montesarchio premiered at the Festival. It is dedicated to the researcher’s work.
A secondary school in Rome, sunny days and lightheartedness, rain and uncertainty, a generation that does not give up and freedom of being, simply: Skam Italia is true life, a picture of the reality which has become the authentic image of young people constantly searching for happiness.
A touching and strongly felt tribute was paid by The Life Senator Liliana Segre to the director Claudio Gubitosi and to all the young participants of the fiftieth edition of the Festival.
After the President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella, sent his best wishes on occasion of the opening of Giffoni50 celebrations, another testimony by another President came, on occasion of the launch of the activities for the fiftieth edition of Giffoni Film Festival. We are talking about the Federal Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel.
