AN HISTORY OF THE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, THROUGH ARCHIVE MATERIALS AND PHOTOGRAPHS
On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Venice International Film Festival, La Biennale di Venezia published the volume Happy 75° – A Brief Introduction to the History of the International Film Festival, entrusting film historian Peter Cowie with the task to outlining a history of the Festival, concise as much as precious. Using archive materials, press reviews, interviews and historical publications, the English journalist developed in seven chapters, featuring photographs, an introduction to the events of the Festival, retracing, with a documentary attitude, transformations, setbacks and rebirths, year after year, from the institution in 1932 up to the present day.
