Two weeks after a New York jury upheld Kevin Spacey In a sexual abuse lawsuit, the Italian Film Museum announced Thursday that the actor will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award and will teach a masterclass there early next year.
Enzo Gigo, president of the National Cinema Museum in the city north of Turin, said classes and awards honoring Spacey’s contribution to the growth of cinema will take place on January 16, 2023. The event will also include screenings. Of Spacey’s film, Gigo said neither. “High-profile guests like Kevin Spacey have chosen Turin and our museum for their long-awaited return to the event with audiences.” I am honored,” he said.
Previous winners of the Stella della Mole Award include actors Isabella Rossellini and Monica Bellucci and director Dario Argento.
On October 21, a federal jury in a civil suit in New York found that 63-year-old Spacey did not sexually abuse Anthony Rapp. Both were relatively unknown Broadway actors in 1986 when Rapp was 14. It was rigorously examined.
The allegations of rap’s #MeToo era, and those of others, have derailed Spacey’s skyrocketing career. I have seen opportunities dry up.
Rapp was a regular on TV’s Star Trek: Discovery and was part of Rent’s original Broadway cast.
Spacey had previously been charged with touching a man in a bar in Massachusetts, but the charges were later dropped by prosecutors. He pleaded not guilty in London to sexually assaulting three men between 2015 and 2015.
This summer, a judge in Los Angeles confirmed the arbitrator’s decision. Spacey ordered to pay House of Cards makers $30.9 million For violating the contract by sexually harassing a crew member.
Spacey shot his latest film, The Man Who Painted God, directed by Franco Nero, in Turin.
“Now, of all the cities in the world, he has chosen Turin for his masterclass. Gaetano said in a news release.
Gaeteno will interview Spacey about his career at an event in January.
