Soccer Trumped Sophia Loren At Film Festival In Italy

Italians are so soccer crazy that games interfered with the Taormina Film Festival Awards. When the Italian team made it into the European championship semifinals, the screenings and ceremonies had to be shifted around at the last minute. All eyes were on the games. Guest of Honor Sophia Loren received an award for her amazing 60 year film career and her prize ceremony was reduced in length to only ten minutes – the duration of halftime in the soccer game! She graciously confessed that SHE was as caught up in the game as everyone else.
