Flavia Laviosa honoured by Italian President Sergio Mattarella at the Quirinale Palace April 2016
Editor of the Journal of Italian Cinema & Media Studies

Flavia Laviosa was honoured at the Italy’s presidential palace in Rome. The event marked the 60th anniversary of the David di Donatello Awards (1956-2016). Laviosa was recognized for the special issue of the Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies (Vol. 4:2, 2016), which was dedicated to the historic and artistic celebrations of this anniversary with testimonials, reflections and interviews.

To recognize her contribution to the academic study of Italian film and media, Laviosa was invited to this year’s awards ceremony in Rome on 18 April. Prior to the evening awards, she attended a solemn ceremony in the morning followed by a reception, both at the Quirinale Palace. Here she met Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella. He congratulated her for promoting Italian cinema in the world with this academic publication. He also expressed his admiration for the journal’s distinguished contribution to Italian culture and art. ‘The encounter with President Mattarella was warm, cordial and inspiring, as were his words of recognition for my work as the founder and principal editor of the journal’ Laviosa reported.

The event also led to another honour for Laviosa. During a conversation with Roberto Cicutto, the President of the Istituto Luce-Cinecittà, she was invited to present the journal to artists, producers, film critics and the media at the 69th edition of the Cannes Film Festival on 18 May, as part of the Italian Cinema Section. Her work on the journal will also take her to Seoul, South Korea. She will lecture there and will formally present the journal at the 8th edition of their Italian Film Festival in October. Such a global reach for the journal is part of its mission, to articulate a ‘multifaceted definition of Italian cinema, transcending geo-ethnic land and sea borders and moving away from merely celebratory local cinematic experiences’.
