XX Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica (1959)

“The spotlight can focus on none other than Rossellini, De Sica, Giovanna Ralli and the entire cast of Generale della Rovere, the film that elevated the rather modest level of the festival this year”, says the announcer. But Italian film is on the upswing: the Golden Lion was awarded jointly to Il Generale della Rovere and La Grande Guerra (The Great War) by Mario Monicelli.
