David di Donatello 2021: all the winners of the new edition

Idavid di Donatello 2021 have come to an end, let’s find out the winners of all categories, including Sofia Loren as best actress for Life in front of her.

The David di Donatello 2021 ended with an American-style ceremony that was divided between the Rai Fabrizio Frizzi studios in Rome and the Teatro dell’Opera in Rome. A weak, little-written ceremony not helped by the current situation that places a narrow audience divided between two different theaters. Among the speeches of the winners and the winners, certainly the one in memory of Mattia Torre emerges, screenwriter and director who passed away in 2019, made by his very young daughter who dedicates it to her father, midwives and nurses.

During the ceremony also i special awards to Monica Bellucci, Sandra Milo and Diego Abbattantuono.
