Venice Film Festival announces tribute to director Citto Maselli

August 13, 2021

La Biennale di Venezia has announced, together with the Giornate degli Autori and the Venice International Film Critics’ Week, a Tribute to director Citto Maselli, the pseudonym of Francesco Maselli, an auteur who has graced many years in Italian cinema with coherence and talent and been appreciated numerous times as a participant in the Venice International Film Festival.

This is the first time that the Venice Film Festival, the Giornate degli Autori (which is celebrating its 18th edition this year) and the Venice International Film Critics’ Week (now in its 36th edition) are celebrating together the career of an artist who has contributed to the development of the art of filmmaking not only as a personal commitment, but also through the collaboration he has offered to other great masters of our cinema, in his fundamental role within and at the head of ANAC (Associazione Nazionale Autori Cinematografici), which next year will celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of its foundation.

The ceremony in honour of Citto Maselli will take place in the Sala Grande of the Palazzo del Cinema (Lido di Venezia) Monday September 6th at 2 pm. The programme will feature, also on Monday September 6th at 3.30 pm in Sala Perla 2 (Palazzo del Casinò), the screening of his film Storia d’amore, which premiered in 1986 at the 43rd Venice Film Festival and won Valeria Golino the Coppa Volpi. The film will be screened with a restored copy provided by Istituto Luce Cinecittà.
