Un prize given by women to women. The Aphrodite Award (promoted by the Women's Audiovisual Promotion Association), now in its 15th edition, it has been assigned to 15 personalities who have contributed with work, creativity and image to promote feminine professionalism, but also to emphasize sensitivity to all the issues concerning women. The areas touched are many: from cinema to fiction, from journalism to sport, to television. During an evening at the Via Tiburtina Studios in Rome, conducted by Laura Delli Colli, president of the Film Journalists Union, e Stefano Meloccaro (Fiorello's right arm in Newsstand Fiore) our 2017 women's excellences took to the stage.
To inaugurate the evening is Madalina Ghenea, who returns four years later on this stage, after she was awarded as a debut actress (remember her in Razzabastarda by Alessandro Gassmann?). The actress of Youth – Youth reappears, this time as a new mother and accompanied by her boyfriend Matei Stratan, to show that his promise kept her. From a former debutant to a debutant who will make his way: Valentina Bellè, extraordinary in Permission – 48 hours outside by Claudio Amendola. "I can't say a word," he says from the stage. She will be the most excited of the evening. The most amusing has been without doubt Carla Signoris (Best supporting actress for the film Let go by Francesco Amato), while the one who entertained the audience the most was the journalist Franca Leosini, rewarded for his Cursed stories. The warmest applause went to her.
Alessandra Mastronardi received Aphrodite for his international career (he has another project outside the Italian borders, but he doesn't want to confess anything), Lorella Cuccarini is the TV personality of the year, but from this summer and autumn we will find her in two theater shows, Anna Foglietta she is the queen of comedy even though she points out: "We are actors and the actors should play any string", while Chiara Francini she is rewarded for her debut as a writer with the book Don't talk with your mouth full.
