James Gandolfini Tribute Closes Out Taormina Fest

The Taormina Film Festival wrapped Saturday with a tribute to James Gandolfini, who was on en route to the fest to be part of the Saturday evening honors when he died in Rome last week.

After a clip of Gandolfini from John Turturro’s “Romance and Cigarettes” was shown to the ampthitheater crowd, Variety executive editor Steven Gaydos presented a brief eulogy and assessment of Gandolfini’s impact, noting that the Italian-American actor was “the one who brought the character of Tony Soprano to life and to international audiences who related to the big man with sad eyes and tremendous heart.” Gaydos called Gandolfini “an actor who had in two decades established himself as an irreplaceable presence in television and film.”

Taormina’s 59th edition showed an increase in attendance of 35% over 2012, according to  artistic director Mario Sesti and general manager Tiziana Rocca. Sesti and Rocca also announced the dates »
