The Federico Fellini Platinum Award for Cinematic Excellence is awarded to one of the most versatile and gifted protagonists of contemporary Italian cinema.
The Manetti Bros, Carlo Verdone, Paolo Virzì, Gianni Amelio, Pupi Avati, Francesca Archibugi, Gabriele Muccino and Daniele Luchetti are just some of the directors who have chosen her for their stories, as they have perused her, brushed against her, “loved” her, caressed her and tailed her with their cameras. And each time, Micaela Ramazzotti has given audiences portraits of women who are capable of making them smile while communicating a vulnerability that is not pacified, not oppressed, not manipulated by life.
Sonia, Serena, Francesca, Elena, Donatella, Rossana are the many names that have been borrowed for the screen and each of them has helped to build a broader image of an attainable feminine identity.
When she reflects on the characters she portrays, she highlights their wonderful imperfections, their determination, their complexity, their romanticism, their “crookedness,” their occasional “craziness,” their responsible tenacity and their vitality for coming to terms with their own contradictions.
The Federico Fellini Award is therefore awarded to Micaela Ramazzotti for her talent as an actress, her charm and the beauty of her intelligence.
