“I am very happy, it is truly an honour to receive this award right now,” said Spanish actress Penelope Cruz after receiving the award. “We all know how difficult it is to organize a Festival now, but the tenacity of Alberto Barbera and his collaborators and their incredible organization have made this possible in honour of cinema… First of all, I thank Pedro, whom I adore, for his artistic sense, because he has once again created magic … I dedicate the award to my wonderful husband, my children, my family… I’m still very nervous and excited and I’m trying to figure out what happened … I am happy that this happiness happened to me right here in Venice,” she said.

The Italian director of the movie ” è stato la mano di Dio” (The Hand of the god), Paolo Sorrentino, received the jury grand prize, while the special jury award was given to the Italian director Michelangelo Frammartino, the director of the movie “Il Buco”.
