All sections »
1959, a golden year for Italian film in Venice. The Golden Lion was won jointly by The Great War
by Mario Monicelli and Il generale Della Rovere
by Roberto Rossellini. That year Vittorio Gassman, the unforgettable Giovanni Busacca in Monicelli’s film, also came to the Lido: here, an exclusive from the archives of the Biennale, is the original handwritten letter in which Vittorio Gassman accepts the invitation to the Venice Film Festival.
