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.
