San Diego Italian Film Festival Presents Maria Grazia Cucinotta Reception

San Diego Italian Film Festival is thrilled to host one of Italy’s most popular actors, Maria Grazia Cucinotta. She is a household name in Italy and a major presence in Italian cinema, having produced a movie or appeared on screen every year since the late 1980s.

The Venice Film Festival dubbed her Madrina, the godmother of the Festival; here in San Diego we are delighted to welcome her with the same title, Madrina of SDIFF and Italian film.

This special appearance also offers our audience a chance to get to know the new Central Library downtown, a major architectural achievement in San Diego over 30 years in the making. A work of stunning vision and civic responsibility unparalleled in the city, the new library is a true child of Italian Renaissance architecture, and SDIFF is proud to help introduce it to our fellow San Diegans.
