This day “is the celebration of Italian cinema but also an important showcase. Every year is a step forward”. This was said by the President of the Republic, Sergio Mattarella, during the presentation ceremony of the candidates for the "David di Donatello" awards, at the Quirinale. Great gratitude “we renew to Gian Luigi Rondi, who had the intuition of this award 68 years ago, succeeding with real and great tenacity in rooting it and making it grow. We remember him as we carry on the witness who left us”, added the President.

Cinema “is imagination and history, emotion and culture. It is also leisure, dreams, freedom”. Cinema, recalled the President, has left "indelible marks in everyone's memory and belongs to our civilization as one of its identifying features". "The David di Donatello help us to trace and mark the path, to have a perception of the progress made, of the values ​​in the field, of this heritage of art and culture that is fully part of Italian history", remarked the Head of State. “Cinema is a witness that passes from hand to hand,” he added.

“We have overcome the most serious pitfalls of a pandemic that has left dramatic and profound marks on social life. He has imposed a brake on many activities ”, Mattarella wanted to recall. But the cinema industry, added the President, "didn't stop even during the lockdown and quickly resumed its path", he concluded.
