The Venice International Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world. Every year, celebrities from around the globe come together to show off their talents and artistic endeavors with a series of screenings, exhibitions and conferences all open for public viewing. The event was originally created by three men who wanted to combine art with international culture; Count Giuseppe Volpi di Misurata is credited as being its founding father.
The Venice Biennale Cinema began under President Volpii Di Mursiata after his close friend Antonio Maraini convinced him that films should not only be seen at theaters but also exhibited among other types of arts such as sculptures or paintings on walls
