This year the annual ‘Los Angeles, Italia – Film Fashion and Art Festival‘, that is at its 13th edition, will be held from February 25 to March 3 at the TLC Chinese 6 Theaters in Hollywood. The Festival promotes Italian cinema, music, and arts in the week leading up to the Oscars and on that occasion Tiziano Ferro will receive the 2018 Italian Excellence Award.
Following the 5 platinum records for his latest album ‘Il mestiere della vita’, the pop-star from Latina, one of the most popular Italian singer-songwriters in the world, will be traveling to Los Angeles to take part in the prestigious event and receive the prize.
Last year, the 2017 Italian Excellence Award was given to the Italian king of rock, Vasco Rossi – also known as Blasco -, who this year will be celebrated with the screening of the documentary movie directed by Pepsy Romanoff, ‘Vasco Modena Park – The Movie‘, which recounts the historic concert, attended by 220,000 fans, for the 40-year career of the artist.
Tony Renis, honorary president of the Festival, said: “After Vasco, Zucchero, De Gregori, Negramaro, Bollani, Bocelli, Griminelli, and the legendary Ennio Morricone, we are proud to celebrate Tiziano Ferro, an extraordinary musician with a truly international dimension, in a city that inspires him artistically. We are also proud to propose to the American public, in a special section of documentaries that tell Italy, the exciting record-concert of Vasco.”
