The winners of a brave edition

Lucky awards wet of tears. Venice of braveness closes with the orgy of pathos of the winners. Even Pierfrancesco Favino was moved after receiving Coppa Volpi for his role in Padrenostro that he also produced. Favino completed “triplete” after David di Donatello and Golden Ribbon.

«Cinema is the space between reality and our imagination» said the President of the Jury, the divine Cate Blanchett. «We made history. We must toast to the bravery of those that believed from beginning to end» glossed patroness Anna Foglietta. Jumping from the videomessages to thank the jury and the festival to the physical ceremony for those able to reach Lido, it was the celebration of a miracle whereon not many would have bet. Nomadland is the right Leone d’oro, telling the story of new American nomads, they do not have a home anymore and always migrating looking for seasonal jobs. The outstanding Frances McDormand and director Chloé Zhao have sent their regards from the rotten van used for the movie. «See you on the road». Just like this Mostra del cinema that took a chance as never in its entire history.
