ROME – The TaorminaFilmFest will fete Claudia Cardinale with its Taormina Arte Award and a retro dedicated to the iconic Italo actress best known for her roles in Luchino Visconti’s “The Leopard” and Federico Fellini’s “8 1\2.”

Located in Sicily, Taormina is among Europe’s oldest fests, being relaunched in recent editions with a more mainstream format by artistic director Mario Sesti and general manager Tiziana Rocca.

Taormina’s 60th edition will run June 14-21.
