Matto Garrone von Trotta

The Federico Fellini Platinum Award for Cinematic Excellence is presented to a director with imaginative talent and a unique authorial perspective.


Recently nominated for an Oscar for Io Capitano, Matteo Garrone has had a career spanning over 30 years in which his cinema has touched on a variety of different themes, more often than not stemming from reality.

As a filmmaker, he has made films capable of resonating with our collective imagination like few others, helping us to challenge our point of view on stories and facts tied to current events by delving into the world with profundity through an objective, serious, sober, or sometimes cynical but always desperately current and sincere viewpoint.

From The Embalmer to Gomorrah, from First Love to Dogman, from Roman Summer to Reality and not to forget the fairy-tale reinterpretations of Tale of Tales and Pinocchio, Matteo Garrone has explored the boundary between chronicle and myth, between personal anxieties and social issues, taking viewers by the hand and offering them a gaze that is never trivial or obvious, but always new and original in its profoundness.

The Federico Fellini Platinum Award for Cinematic Excellence is thus granted to Matteo Garrone for having had the courage to create an original, powerful and personal cinema, capable of engaging Italian and international audiences alike through its imaginative force, especially by virtue of the different perspective that a great author must possess and be able to share with his audience.
