One of the elite honorees at the annual Italian event, Monica Bellucci was toasted at the 57th Taormina Film Fest in Taormina over the weekend.

The 46-year-old actress spent Saturday night (June 11) attending the "Kung Fu Panda 2" premiere and opening ceremony - during which time she was presented with the Taormina Arte Award.

With Oliver Stone and Tarak Ben Ammar among the other recipients, the Taormina Arte Awards are passed out every year to directors, actors and actresses who "have made vital contributions to international cinema."

Keeping up with the busy schedule, Miss Bellucci was back out on Sunday (June 12) to partake in a photo call session while also speaking with students during a Q&A session called "Campus Taormina Special".
