Azimut Yachts at the Rome Film Fest with Open Your Eyes

The Rome Film Fest played host to the official projection of Open Your Eyes, the short film by Gabriele Muccino that celebrates the debut of the new Magellano 25 Metri by Azimut Yachts. Attending the event with the film’s director and Azimut|Benetti Group vice president Giovanna Vitelli were the two actors, Francesco Scianna and Mariana Falace, and some of the main contributors to the project, including composer Andrea Guerra, editor Lorenzo Colugnati and costume designer Angelica Russo.

Yesterday, Sunday October 18, the short film Open Your Eyes, directed by Gabriele Muccino to celebrate the launch of Azimut Yachts’ latest vessel, received its first festival showing at the Rome Film Fest that ends next October 25. As can be seen, the brand has chosen a great filmmaker to mark the debut of Magellano 25 Metri, a model that the outstanding creative contribution of her designers Vincenzo De Cotiis and Ken Freivokh has transformed into a unique and unprecedented yacht project. 

“It filled us with emotion to present our short film at the Rome Film Fest, with the extraordinary participation of Laura Delli Colli, President of the Cinema per Roma Foundation. My thanks go to Gabriele Muccino for using images and emotions to successfully and fully describe Italian art, quality, beauty and know-how in an engaging and unexpected way. These are the values to which our every action aspires in the design and construction of our yachts. It is an experience that encourages us to continue working in the direction taken by Azimut|Benetti Group for a number of years now: creative collaborations with major talents and initiatives that break the mould, taking the magic of yachting outside its usual settings and conveying the unique sensation and experience conveyed by the experience of our boats,” commented Giovanna Vitelli, Azimut|Benetti Group vice president.

Open your eyes will land in the United States next October 27, at a private projection in the Pérez Art Museum in Miami, to mark the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 28 to November 1.
