Tea with Mussolini

Directed by Franco Zeffirelli

Starring Cher, Judy Dench, Joan Plowright, Maggie Smith, Lily Tomlin

The touch of Maestro Zeffirelli can be seen through the frescoes of Florence in the 1930’s, although the atmosphere is enchanting, it also touches on the atrocities of war. In honor of the Maestro, it is now possible to visit the Franco Zeffirelli International Center for Performing Arts Foundation in Florence, which is also a tribute to his 70 years of undisputed international film, theater and music career.
