The director Alberto Barbera, who with the president of the Biennale Roberto Cicutto will present the selection of Venezia 79 on Tuesday 26 July, may have managed, according to the rumors gathered by ANSA on the eve of the eve, some international coup, one of those that Oscars.

Can you root for glam couple George Clooney – Julia Roberts? For the latter, incredible to say, it would be the first time on the red carpet of the Palazzo del cinema and the romantic duo would TICKET TO PARADISE maybe out of competition (and who cares?). Harry Styles could also get to make the girls scream, protagonist of DON’T WORRY DARLING by Oliva WILDE with the emerging Florence Plugh also starring in THE WONDER by Sebastian LELIO (and much more, including Nolan’s Oppenheimer with Peaky Blinders Cyllian Murphy). And then again THE SON by Florian ZELLER (the Oscar winner of The Father) with Vanessa Kirby, while the return of Darren ARONOFSKY with THE WHALE with Sadi Sink, Brendan Fraser and Samantha Morton is assumed. Among the returns also that of Christophe HONORÉ (Lost Illusions) with THE LYCEENS with Juliette Binoche, Vincent Lacoste and Xavier Giannoli. And Abel FERRARA with FATHER PIO.
And the Italians?

But it was said at the beginning great crowding. A place in Venice, between competition, out of competition, Horizons, Giornate degli Autori seems to have been booked by others too, such as Roberto AND’ with THE STRANEZZA with Ficarra and Picone and Toni Servillo, Roberto DE PAOLIS director of PRINCESS, Goofy HALF WEIGHT with I EAT YOUR HEART with Elodie, the return of Alessio CREMONINI (On my skin) with PROPHETS with Jasmine Trinca.
