Valentina Lodovini who wanted to offer the prize for Best Comedy Actress at the Cinecittà workers barricaded themselves in these days to avert the closure of the historic center of production. The challenge is made more explicit with the intervention of Daniele Favilli, very active actor in Los Angeles, which has emphasized the difficulty of making films in our country. Animated response of the audience.
