Diversity, the association chired by Francesca Vecchioni is committed to enhance inclusion through culture actions against prejudice and discrimination. Lovers Film Festival – Turin LGBTQI Visions, directed by Irene Dionisio and chaired by Giovanni Minerba, present the film "Puoi baciare lo sposo" by Alessandro Genovesi, in Italian preview, on 27th February, 9 p.m, at Multiplex Cinema Massimo– Theatre 1.

The film will be screened in cinemas starting from 1st March 2018.

Free entry until availability.

 

After the screening there will be a debate with the director Alessandro Genovesi; with the actors Cristiano Caccamo and Salvatore Esposito; the president of Diversity, Francesca Vecchioni, the president and the director of Lovers Film Festival, Giovanni Minerba and Irene Dionisio.

 

"Puoi baciare lo sposo", as usual for Italian comedies, tells the evolution of our society making people laugh and reflect at the same time. The strength of the genre is the language, the ability to speak to everybody, and this is also a great responsibility." This is what Francesca Vecchioni said– "Cinema shapes collective imagination and the opportunity to give a new sensibility to the audience represents an unprecedented occasion: if we want to fight prejudice it crucial to make inclusion and diversity mainstream issues."

"I'm happy that Lovers Film Festival could cooperate for this preview"– declares Irene Dionisio– "I think it's particularly important and not so common that the director, the production and the cast of the film decided to debate with Diversity an association that has always campaigned for LGBTQI people rights" 

 

 

 

 

THE FILM

 

Antonio (Cristiano Caccamo) finally found the love of his life Paolo (Salvatore Esposito) and they happily live together in Berlin. During an enthusiastic declaration of love, Antonio asks Paolo to marry him. In this moment the have to cope with their families. They decide to leave for Italy together. Their destination is Civita di Bagnoregio, the place where Antonio's parents live: his mother Anna (Monica Guerritore) and his father Roberto (Diego Abatantuono), a progressive mayor who put integration and reception at the core of his political plan. During their journey the two lovers are not alone, with them there is Benedetta (Diana Del Bufalo) a bizarre friend and Donato(Dino Abbrescia) their new stressed room-mate. Anna immediately accepts his son's decision to marry Paolo  with a civil partnership provided that they respect all the traditions and some conditions: they have to invite the future mother-in-law and all the community members of their village. Moreover Enzo Miccio, wedding planner par excellence should be in charge of the organisation. Finally Roberto, Antonio's father, should celebrate the wedding with his mayor's tricolour sash. Will Vincenza (Rosaria D'Urso) attend the wedding? And above all Will Roberto support his son in his decision?
