His recent appearance at the event indeed received overwhelming attention and support from fans. Despite his ongoing legal battle and losing all his roles, Depp stood in front of the people who believed in him when everyone else did not.

One fan even noted that Depp remains one of the most loved celebrities in Italy of all time. The Rome Film Festival reportedly used the event to honor him as the Hollywood star who offered a massive contribution to the industry.

A now-viral video of Depp walking through the Auditorium Della Concillazione also showed people cheering on him as he began interacting with young fans.

His appearance came after his fans asked for a global release of his movie, "Minamata." The film was first premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival in February before MGM and Vertigo Releasing acquired its distribution rights.

However, Levitas requested MGM to "bury the film" due to Depp's legal concerns. Still, fans remain hopeful that other Deppheads around the globe would soon see his performance, as well.
