Greetings from Carmelantonio D'Agostino (The Major of Taormina)

And the fact that the festival is going the right way to returning to the glories of the past is demonstrated by the presence at the inaugural evening of the President of the Region, the Hon. Salvatore Cuffaro and of several other members of the regional government, amongst whom the regional minister for Tourism Dore Misuraca. I would like to thank them all for everything they have done until now for Taormina Arte and above all for everything they will do in the near future. The Cinema Festival and the whole of Taormina Arte very much need the support of the local government and of the entire Regional Assembly.
