Nastri d’argento 2024 Documentaries, Mario Martone awarded with the “Tape of the Year”


Tape of the Year’ for Documentary to Mario Martone, a great author who with curiosity and passion signed the affectionately unpublished story of Someone over there loves mededicated to Massimo Troisi, but also the originality of A moving portrait. Homage to Mimmo Jodice which reveals the art and philosophy of a great photographer.

“Presented respectively at the Berlinale and the Turin Film Festival, they are two films that leave a special mark in the memory of cinema and in the stories of different characters, yet linked by a thread which, beyond Naples – we read in the motivation for the Award – intertwines the rereading affectionate of a great protagonist, much loved and never forgotten, to the aesthetics of an artist, a ‘giant’ as Martone defines him, who focuses in each shot on a sort of ‘philosophical’ manual of living, leaving us to enjoy a beauty that goes beyond the gaze.”

The Tape of the Year

This was announced by the Board of Italian Film Journalists who will present the director with this recognition of excellence during the awards ceremony which will be held in the next few weeks in Rome with Ribbons and special prizes for the winners, chosen from the 55 titles of the official selection announced today, including ‘Cinema del Reale’, films on ‘Cinema, Entertainment, Culture’ and this also year a special ‘five’ dedicated to Art.

The ‘Ribbon of the Year’ is a recognitionnto that in documentaries, as among the best cinema titles, it rewards the excellence and particular quality of a ‘special’ film. “A Nastro d’Argento this year has already been announced for Cinema to Paola Cortellesi for the success of an extraordinary film like There’s still tomorrow – recalls the President, Laura Delli Colli on behalf of the Board – and went for documentaries in 2022 to Giuseppe Tornatore for Ennio on the great Morricone, and in 2023 on Francesco Zippel’s film on Sergio Leone, the Italian who invented America”.

The other selected documentaries

The two documentaries for which Mario Martone receives the ‘Tape of the Year’ are part of the selection of 55 ‘competitors’ this year, chosen from 130 titles proposed in 2023 by the most important festivals or in specialized events and in any case also presented on television networks or platforms. In selection a panorama rich in themes, stories and characters who does not forget current events but not even recent history with one particular look towards the present in the cinema of reality in a dramatic year between migrations, wars, feminicides, alarm over climate change and, in the world of Entertainment and Culture, it dedicates special attention, with Cinema, to the protagonists of music.

The official selection, on the coordination of the 130 published titles, edited by Maurizio di Rienzo, is signed by the National Board of Italian Film Journalists (SNGCI): Laura Delli Colli (President), Fulvia Caprara (Vice President), Oscar Cosulich, Maurizio di Rienzo , Susanna Rotunno, Paolo Sommaruga and Stefania Ulivi.
