“The upcoming event – claims Gubitosi – will be a spectacular and cultural groundbreaking happening.  Harry Potter’s mark will be everywhere and we are proud and happy to host  his final adventure. I would like to thank the  President of Warner Bros. Entertainment Italia, Paolo Ferrari for this wonderful opportunity. The 3300 jurors of the festival, over 300 more than 2010, and over  25 thousand applicants, will have a unique opportunity. The  Giffoni experience will of course have many other surprises for different palates”.

“As far as the theme is concerned – LINK – we wish to analyze its various nuances and meanings such as network  (not just the internet), sharing, bridge – as the artistic direction points out -. Revealing the mechanism behind the relationship between men, objects, globalization,  following the dynamics regards the connection of topics which are apparently disconnected (key to concepts such as  “metaphors”), searching the links, the conjunction between emotion and sensation (in paleontology  LINK is a conjunction ring)”.
