A private party hosted by Ukrainian TV presenter Oksana Marchenko and Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk at the 65th Taormina Film Festival on July 2 had a great success. Festival’s art director Silvia Bizio, executive producer Marco Fallanca, the President of Videobank  Lino Chiechio, Australian film director Phillip Noyce, a winner of several dozens of world film awards, two of which were received at the Taormina Film Festival, the American Oscar-winning film director Oliver Stone, as well as actress and producer of the film A Son of a Man Lily van Ghemen and Spanish actress, TV host and model Rocío Muñoz Morales attended the party.

However, the real star of the evening was a longtime friend of Marchenko-Medvedchuk couple - Italian designer Domenico Dolce. As a native of Sicily, he found himself in his familiar environment, which surely reminded him of his small homeland. In addition, the party was held at Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo, in which many years ago the first show of Domenico Dolce took place. 

The event took place on the open terrace of one of the most fashionable hotels near the ruins of an ancient Greek amphitheater with a panoramic view of the sea.

The party was in Sicilian style with decor, made by local master Dino Giamona. Each element of the decor was unique, everything was made by hand specifically for tonight. The tables and stands had fresh flowers, lemons, fans for women, Sicilian tambourines (which the guests used later), figures of Catholic saints, and installations with hundreds of clockworks symbolizing the passing of time to appreciate its value. Beautiful silver talismans for good luck were on every table.  

At the beginning of the evening, the guests were offered to taste traditional Ukrainian snacks - salo, ham, homemade sausage on Ukrainian black bread.

About ten dishes were served on the table - from traditional mozzarella and burrata cheeses to battered zucchini flowers, stuffed with goat cheese and pea soufflé, lobsters and swordfish fillet. Traditional Italian desserts were served at the end - pastries, conollo, and others.

Italian chic with exquisite furnishing then turned into full-on amusement. Guests had fun with world-famous Italian songs of the 50s - 70s, along with professional dancers.

The party soon plunged its participants into the classic Italian movie, thanks to which the third day of the film festival will be remembered with joy.
