“I organize the Italian Movie Award © since 2009 with the intention of making films and culture, through social issues that each year are represented in the movie in competition. The festival has achieved extraordinary results coming to 181,000 admissions in ten years,  84 days of festival, only 40,000 last year. The festival is organized non-profit organization, with the hard work and passion of dozens of young volunteers. From 1st edition, has not received any financial support from public authorities, but is supported 100% private and we are all proud to not weigh on citizens, because convinced that to do in a free culture, that culture must also become firm . I have always believed in the future, I believe it means to believe in the young, give them opportunities, trust, make them grow. Too often, unfortunately, with the excuse of youth, education and opportunities, they find themselves exploited, and demoralized by a system that does not believe in their ideas, creativity and meritocracy. Our best young people are forced to emigrate, leaving a generation gap for the economy and the growth of an entire country. With the support of La Cartiera of Pompeii (our main supporter and host structure the entire village of the festival), we gave the opportunity to many young people believe in the future, to train them, follow them, help them and in some cases find them work, in the world that they love and dream, the Cinema. In the 10th edition of the real “engine” of our own, but most of your festival, will again be the cinema training “Italian Movie Master ©”, became a meeting and discussion of the most important in Italy. Also this year, the Master, unlike many speculations present in other realities, will be completely Free for 100 young people from all over Italy. Make announcements it is easy, but do the facts is quite another. The talent and creativity are the greatest guarantee to a better future, innovative, and these skills are not to be feared or exploited, but rather enhanced. “
