Special Silver Ribbon for the actor Renato Pozzetto, as a tribute to the exciting interpretation in the film “She speaks to me again” by Pupi Avati

The special prize for Renato Pozzetto as a sign of homage to the intense role played in She still talks to me, the latest film by Pupi Avati; taken from the poet’s autobiography Giuseppe “Nino” Sgarbi. After almost half a century in the guise of comic and hilarious roles, the well-known actor Pozzetto has been able to show off a dramatic and profound register different from the usual. A wide career marked by the partnership with Cochi Panzoni. Part of the history of Italian cabaret, known by generations of the past and present.

Assigned by Film Journalists a prize that falls on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the well-known edition, like the 75 films part of Pozzetto’s career. An edition in the name of solidarity and closeness, waiting for the real restart for the whole sector. From the direction to the protagonists, to the technicians, but also with all the “invisible” workers behind the scenes.
