The 53rd edition of TaorminaFilmFest this year has a brand new logo. A golden coin will now be the distinctive symbol of this prestigious festival, a symbol that has its roots in the time when Taormina was known as Tauromenium, the first Greek colony in Sicily. The coin portrays a charging bull, drawn with essential modern lines as well as other elements. The nobility of the colour gold represents the essence, the heat and the sunshine of a Sicilian embrace. The original plans of the Greek Theatre surround the coin and become a roll of film which ends in the number 53, the number of this edition. Once again Taormina is the fulcrum, the origin of exceptional cultural events.
