#Giffoni53 presented in a symbolic place of the Campania Region: the Casina Vanvitelliana in Bacoli, in the province of Naples

The project is co-financed by Campania Region and the Ministry of Culture – Cinema and Audiovisual General Direction

July 5, Bacoli – Indispensabili. Indispensable for the growth of the community and the development of territories, to start a change, spread ideas, feed the emotions, share values. This is the topic of the 53rd edition of the Giffoni Film Festival that chose to start its story in one of the most suggestive places of Campania region. The Casina Vanvitelliana in Bacoli (NA), where the program of the festival, scheduled from 20 to 29 July, has been presented. The eighteenth-century structure, often used as a set for cinema and television, hosted the collective live show that marked the start of this new journey among young people and for young people, that are the absolute protagonists, as always. Campania Region is the main partner of Giffoni, with support from the Ministry of Culture.

The team presented the various sections of the programme to more than 100 giffoners, through a series of linkups from different landmarks: the Antro della Sibilla Cumana, the Tempio di Nettuno in Paestum, Riccione, where Cinè – Le Giornate Professionali di Cinema is taking place, the housing community for foreign unaccompanied minors Casa di Giona in Scafatiand the Multimedia Valley of Giffoni. In this journey there are also the mayor of Bacoli, Josi Gerardo Della Ragione; Giffoni’s director and founder Claudio Gubitosi; General Manager Jacopo Gubitosi; artistic director Luca Apolito; the Councillor for Tourism of Campania Region, Felice Casucci; the president of the Giffoni Experience body, Pietro Rinaldi; the Counsellor appointed to the Relations with the Festival of Giffoni Valle Piana, Giuseppe Marrandino; in connection from remote, there was Erri De Luca, who designed the image of #Giffoni53; General Carmine Masiello, Deputy Chief of the Defence General Staff; the Councillor for Vocational Training of Campania Region, Armida Filippelli; the director of Paestum’s archaeological park, Velia Tiziana D’Angelo; the CEO and vice-president of Medusa Film, Giampaolo Letta; Ciné’s General Manager Remigio Truocchio and the various departments of Giffoni.

Today we are writing another page that highlights the commitment we have to promote to support the adolescents in trouble – Giffoni’s founder Claudio Gubitosi said – I want to remind you of that famous human and moral testament left by Francois Truffaut in 1982. That handwritten phrase “among all the cinema festivals, that of Giffoni is the most necessary”, breaks into this meeting and our new initiatives after 41 years. To the necessary we add the “Indispensable”. The news, the tragic events we witness, often related to minors, urge us to provide tools for reading and sharing, addressed to generations that live in their own troubled little world, that devastates themselves and others. Giffoni plays its part for over half a century, with a place where light, beauty and contagious positive energy are a strong antidote to boredom and unnecessary violence”.

Jacopo Gubitosi, Giffoni’s General Manager, analyses the data: “This is a brave and ambitious edition: 150 works in competition from 35 countries, including Italy, and 50 hors concours; 320 thousand people expected from 20 to 29 July; 250 young people of the IMPACT! section will meet men and women of science, entertainment, institutions, culture, entrepreneurship, sport; 1 national and 4 international previews; 20 special events; 20 music artists and 10 live showcases. There is also the Village that includes a lot of activities for the families; from animation to laboratories, as well as the long awaited Giffoni Food Show; 30 innovators in the Dream Team section; 18 special projects with different bodies, associations and companies; more than 40 protagonists of the most important Italian and international companies. We also expect to reach 600 million potential contracts through traditional media and social networks. Finally, the most important number. After a great work of coordination, organization and review of our spaces, this year there are 6,500 jurors in the various sections, coming from 22 countries. Again this year, the traditional ritual of hospitality towards Italian and foreign jurors in the families of the territory, will take place”.

It’s always a great emotion to present a new edition of Giffoni – Pietro Rinaldi, president of the Giffoni Experience Autonomous Body, says – this year we do it in a place full of charm and suggestion, confirming how Giffoni, edition after edition, has never lost the desire to be strongly connected to Campania region, to its regional level. I want to thank Claudio Gubitosi, who continues to have insights able to fan this spark that never goes out, but rather represents a strong landmark for our young people. We can’t wait to have you with us at Giffoni, from July 20. We can’t wait to welcome the thousands of jurors that will participate to this edition, along with their families. “Indispensabili” is this year’s theme, indispensable as our kids, unique pieces of a collective dream called Giffoni”.

It’s truly exciting to present this edition of Giffoni in a place full of history and culture. Here there is a strong charm, that of the Antro della Sibilla, a place where, for millennia, people would come looking for answers. On the contrary, our young people arrive at Giffoni looking for questions, because this is our mission, promote discussion and confrontation”, this was the comment of Luca Apolito, Giffoni’s artistic director.

During the morning, Felice Casucci, Counsellor for Tourism of Campania Region, also took part. “I feel I must thank the project presented today for its varied nature and because you are able to tell many stories focusing on various topics. I ask you not to quench the attention on fragility, territoriality and hospitality. This is why Giffoni represents a great opportunity for Campania Region. Giffoni is a reference model for young people and all those who want to investigate the relations between art, culture and hospitality. For all of this, I’m truly impressed. I tell young people to evolve, to follow the example of Giffoni that has been able to create objective condition for hope and the courage of hope. Giffoni has also represented an ante litteram tool able to counter the depopulation of inland areas. For all of this, Campania Region is alongside Giffoni”.

I thank Giffoni for choosing our extraordinary town. We are in a surprisingly beautiful place. The fact that you have chosen Bacoli is for us a reason of pride because it means offering us a national and international showcase as does Campania Region in every occasion – these are the words of Josi Gerardo Della Ragione, major of Bacoli -. Our Casina Vanvitelliana is everywhere, as a symbol of our Region. Everything was born here. And I’m happy that we are presenting precisely from here an extraordinary event, born from the mind of a man who has realised how, also in this place, it was possible to create something of international importance. We Phlegraean are accustomed to beauty but we often forget that the main resource are the citizens who live the Phlegraean Fields. We too can realize something as extraordinary as Giffoni. We must contribute to realize extraordinary things. I want to remember that 39 years ago, precisely on July 5, Diego Armano Maradona showed up at the San Paolo stadium in Naples. He said he had come to make children happy. 39 years apart, I feel like there is a perfect harmony with what we do here today. Our goal is to create many Giffoni in every corner of our territory”.

General Carmine Masiello, Deputy Chief of the Defence General Staff, illustrated the activities that the Defence will realize during #Giffoni53. “I’m deeply tied to Giffoni. I participated for the first time when I was 12 and I had the beautiful occasion to talk with the young people. When I learned of this year’s theme, Indispensabili, I immediately thought about the young people that crowd the festival and are the most profound soul of the festival, representing innovation and future. They need our help to become citizens of tomorrow. Indispensable, as are the values on which our country is based. Giffoni is a space of sharing and ideas in which it is possible to tell and share stories, experiences and passions”.

Giffoni has so many excellencies but, above all, a living monument that is Claudio Gubitosi – these are the words of Giuseppe Marrandino, Counsellor appointed to the Relations with the Festival of Giffoni Valle Piana -. This year’s edition will be amazing. We are preparing as well as possible to host this colourful flood that, along with families, will crowd the streets of our town. I want to thank the families of Giffoni that, during these days, will host the jurors. This is one of Giffoni’s points of strength. We have a positive synergy with the Giffoni Film Festival, as proven by the various construction sites and the works realized in these years that have allowed a strong transformation of the territory”.

In connection from the housing community for foreign unaccompanied minors “La Casa di Giona” of Scafati, the Councillor for Vocational Training of Campania Region, Armida Filippelli, took part: “One of the goals that we share with Giffoni is to promote the inclusion and to give young people those opportunity that an early school leaving could deny them, condemning them to a life not up to their talent. We are inclusive and we want to be so, because for us young people’s rights are precious. We desire to launch a message to the whole of Italy because Campania Region works to give a chance to find a path to those who do not have it. With the activities that we offer we tend to give this opportunity”.

The collaboration between Giffoni and the Government institutions becomes more and more close. Particularly with the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Economy and Finance, the Ministry of Defence and the Defence Staff. During the days of the event, there will be information spaces directly managed by the institutions with laboratories, awareness campaigns, promotional activities. Ample space will be dedicated to the military corps’ bands and fanfare, that will cheer Giffoni with suggestive concerts at the Giardino degli Aranci.
