The glamour summer of Emma Villas: Taomoda!


This post is also available in: Italian

The allure of Taormina in July is glamour with Taomoda and the Tao Awards presented in the splendid setting of the Teatro Antico, this year during the gala evening on Saturday, July 21 2018.

The event – sponsored by the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (National Chamber of Italian Fashion) and by Confindustria Moda – closes, in fact, the annual calendar of fashion events in Europe.

Creator and artistic director of the exhibition is Agata Patrizia Saccone, a journalist who introduced fashion to Sicily and Sicily to fashion.

Fashion, art, culture, design, food, journalism, business and science meet for a week (this year from July 14 to 21 2018) in a single event of great prestige in the pearl of the Ionian Sea, Taormina.

The climax of the event is the gala at the Teatro Antico, when illustrious figures from the world of fashion, design, culture, journalism, music, business, cinema and television receive the TAO AWARDS, recognitions that replace in the long-standing palmares of the original event, increasing its prestige, the international award “Talenti & Dintorni” (Talents & Surroundings), that was held in Catania for 14 years.

In keeping with the times, the TaoModa event combined with the Tao Awards and TaoDesign can be followed constantly on social networks so as not to miss any event.

But the splendid events organised in the evocative setting of the Greek theatre of Taormina do not end here:  the date with Sting on August 1 has been confirmed, with great expectations for his return  which will be the highlight of the Taormina summer.

On August 17 Ermal Meta,  August 18 Gianna Nannini,  August 19 Negrita, August 24 Baustelle, August 25 Max Gazzè, August 26 Renzo Arbore and August 31 Fabrizio Moro.

Sicily confirms itself as the land of great media events (find out here about all the other events organized in Sicily!)
