the events organised by the Taormina Bnl Film Fest paying homage
to the art of Sergio Leone. First of all, the tribute comprehends
a retrospective realised in collaboration with the Leone family,
Alberto Grimaldi, and supported by the National Film School-Cineteca
Nazionale. Besides, there will be an important International
convention dedicated to the artist with the participation of
some friends and collaborators of his, arriving from all over

Wallach and to Carlo Verdone as Leone Award.
On the Festival's inaugural night, the Diamond Award-winning
Ennio Morricone, who wrote so many pieces of music for Leone's
films, conducted a concert. In addition, some videos will be
also shown, and two publications presented (one is a book collecting
photos by Roberto Granata, and the other is an essay written
by Christopher Frayling). An exhibition prepared by Maimone
