Francesco Carrozzini creates an intimate portrait of his mother, Franca Sozzani, the legendary Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia — a magazine that over the past twenty-five years has set the highest bar for fashion, art and commerce. From the famous “Black Issue" to the “Plastic Surgery issue", Franca Sozzani remains deeply committed to exploring off-limit subjects in order to shake up the status quo and redefine the concept of beauty. With interviews from Karl Lagerfeld, Bruce Weber, Baz Luhrmann, Courtney Love and many others, Carrozzini gives us a behind the scenes glimpse into his mother’s creative process and a peek into her past and present vulnerabilities.

  THE DUEL OF WINE

Refreshments and “Wine tasting” provided by Carpineto, Arnaldo Caprai, Bisol Crede and Cantina del Castello.
Famed sommelier Charlie Arturaola fell from grace after a momentary loss of his sense of taste during the shooting of a movie. The image of "a Sommelier without palate" destroyed his career and he was forced to lead a precarious life in the suburbs of Miami, Florida. In the meantime, another great sommelier, Luca Gardini from Italy, quickly advances toward the final stage of the international competition “The Duel of Wine.”  Charlie devises a stratagem that will allow him to participate in the competition: he will hide behind the mystery and buffoonery of a disguise, the “Masked Count.“

The day following the Arab Spring revolution of 2011, Amira and Tarek, two Tunisian migrants with nothing in common, reach the Italian coast. By chance, they both find themselves seeking help from a Taranta band from Salento pursuing success between festivals and weddings. The band mistakes them for a couple expecting a child, and decides to help them reach France. A trip marked by fear, love, and an uncertain future brings the travelers together in a unforgettable shared experience, one that might change their lives forever.
