Ermanno Olmi

Ermanno Olmi (Bergamo, Italy, 1931 - Asiago, Vicenza, Italy, 2018) made various documentaries about industrial production while working at Edison. In 1959, he shot his first feature film, Time Stood Still, and in 1963,  I fidanzati, which confirmed his interest in the world of ordinary people and daily life. In 1978, he won the Golden Palm in Cannes with The Tree of Wooden Clogs. After an illness forced him to stop working, he founded the school Ipotesi Cinema. After resuming his activity as a director, he won the Golden Globe and nine David di Donatello awards for The Profession of Arms.  In 2008, he received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement. In 2014, on the one hundredth anniversary of the start of WWI, he directed Torneranno i prati, and in 2017, he made his final movie, Vedete, sono uno di voi.

Director statement

“It must be said that, despite the great respect Rai enjoyed in those years, the budget for these cultural programs was very small. Thus, we headed off more with a feeling of sincere conviction than with adequate funds. In this specific case, we arrived in Cuneo and Boves, we called a few local friends to help us find people who could play the roles of the disbanded soldiers, the vehicles, the trucks. In short, everyone lent a hand, and this is because the feelings of that tragedy were still alive and everyone felt they had to collaborate somehow because, in that way, they could help construct the historical memory of their reality.”
