Spacey shot his most recent film, director Franco Nero’s “The Man Who Drew God,” in Turin. He is set to receive an award for his contribution to the growth of cinema and be interviewed about his career at the city’s National Film Museum.
Previous winners of the Stella della Mole award are actors Isabella Rossellini and Monica Bellucci, as well as director Dario Argento.
Spacey is due to stand trial in London in June on a dozen charges alleging he sexually assaulted four men between 2001 and 2013, including when he was artistic director of the city’s Old Vic theatre. He pleaded not guilty.
In October, a federal jury in a civil case in New York found that Spacey, 63, had not sexually abused actor Anthony Rapp when the two were relatively unknown actors on Broadway in 1986 and Rapp had 14 years old. Jurors deliberated for just over an hour before deciding that Rapp, now 50, had not proven his claims.
Spacey has previously faced allegations in Massachusetts that he groped a man at a bar. Prosecutors later dropped the charges.
A Los Angeles judge in August approved an arbitrator’s decision to order Spacey to pay the ‘House of Cards’ creators $30.9 million for violating his contract by sexually harassing crew members .
