The Globo D’Oro film prize was established in 1959 by the Foreign Press Club in Rome and is being held for the 60th time this year (2020). The prizes are awarded to the best Italian productions of the saison.

Over the years, important actors and directors have attended, such as Federico Fellini, Sophia Loren and Roberto Benigni. Several foreign film stars among which Franco Nero have also given credit to the Globo d’Oro.

The award is considered one of the most important film awards in Italy.

The annual awards ceremony in early summer is traditionally an important event in Rome’s cultural life. The choice of location often has to do with the background of the members of the Foreign Press Club, such as at residences, embassies or cultural institutions, like the French Villa Medici and the German Palazzo Massimo.

The last award ceremony (2019) took place in the appealing location of Villa Wolkonsky, the residence of the British ambassador in Italy.
