Venice Film Festival
The Venice Film Festival is part of the Venice Biennale, which consists of a range of separate events, such as the International Art Exhibition, the International Theatre Festival, the International Kids’ Carnival, and more. Amongst the set of events the most recognized festival is the Venice Film Festival, which began in 1932. It can be safely assumed that this event holds great prestige throughout the world because it is the oldest international film festival in the globe! This festival annually occurs for about 10 days, typically in late August or early September, on the island of the Lido, Venice.
For years we are usually in Italy and touring the properties in Lake Como or the Amalfi coast, since they are among our most requested lake and sea side areas. We are always made aware of the actors who are in town and extend their trip into the resort areas. You can often see roads blocked in lake Como when George Clooney is in town. Once in Ravello, the town had helicopters hovering above while transporting the actors from Venice to the resort of Hotel Caruso or San Pietro. This internationally acclaimed event draws spectators from all over the world. It is always fun to be in Italy for these events as no one celebrates these types of festivities like the Italians.
