Hidden Away [+lire aussi :

The event saw nominees from all categories attending the event in person, as opposed to last year’s virtual edition, with the ceremony unfolding in two separate venues: RAI’s television studios and Rome’s Teatro dell’Opera. Giorgio Diritti’s movie about the painter Antonio Ligabue scooped seven Davids out of 15 nominations: Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor (Elio Germano), Best Set Design, Cinematography, Hair Design and Sound. “Let us remember Ligabue when we see a homeless person painting the Madonna”, the director insisted during his acceptance speech. “Let us remember the importance of all men and uphold that principle for as long as we can and in every way that we can”.
The other big favourite, Gianni Amelio’s Hammamet [+lire aussi :

Heart-tugging moments included the presentation of the Best Actress David to Sophia Loren for her part in her son Edoardo Ponti’s film The Life Ahead [+lire aussi :

fiche film] directed by the much adored Mattia Torre, who died before his time in 2019. The trophy was accepted by his 12-year-old daughter Emma (“I’d like to congratulate my father who managed to win this prize even though he’s not here anymore. Well done, Dad”).
Well worth a final mention is the David for Best Emerging Director, which went to Pietro Castellitto (The Predators [+lire aussi :
