Italians in Film is a project aimed at creating an environment where Italy and Hollywood can meet and share a common ground, thus building strong synergies with the local movie industry and the audience through the presentation of the best Italian film productions, its artists, and filmmakers.
The Spiral Foundation, was started 14 years ago by Marichia Arese Simcik: the purpose of the Foundation is that of promoting and participating in Humanitarian and Medical Projects in economically Developing Countries, giving dignified work to hundreds of people and assisting with medical needs. In the past 12 years, with the help of volunteers and one part time employee in Los Angeles, we have returned over one and a half million dollars to people in Vietnam, Nepal and now also to immigrant refugees in Italy. We financed over 300 heart surgeries to children born with congenital heart disease in Vietnam, we opened a clinic in a remote mountain area of Nepal and are now giving hope and work to a dozen African refugees in Rome, Italy. The Foundation works by providing skills, materials and salaries to local artisans who manufacture gift items which we sell in America and in Italy: people are happy to purchase nice things while doing good at the same time. We call it the "gift of giving back". And it makes everybody happy. Check out the Spiral Foundation, and contribute to a better and sustainable world!
