Ermanno Olmi
Ermanno Olmi, after directing a number of documentaries, made his first feature, Il tempo si fermato (Time Stood Still) in 1959. At the Venice Film Festival in 1961, he won both the OCIC Award and the Critics' Prize for his film Il posto (The Job).

His best-known works include: L'albero degli zoccoli (The Tree of Wooden Clogs, 1978), winner of the Palme d'Or; Lunga vita alla signora (Long Live the Lady!, 1987), which was honoured with the Silver Lion, and La leggenda del santo bevitore (The Legend of the Holy Drinker, 1988), awarded the Golden Lion.

In 2001 he made Il Mestiere delle armi (The Profession of Arms) and two years later Cantando dietro i paraventi (Singing Behind Screens). Olmi co-directed Tickets with Kiarostami and Loach in 2005. In 2007 the Fondazione Arnaldo Pomodoro presented the film Ermanno Olmi dedicated to the art exhibition by Jannis Kounellis entitled "Atto unico".

For the Milan Triennial in 2008, Olmi directed the documentary I Grandi Semplici and, for the following year, TerraMadre, in collaboration with the Cineteca di Bologna and the Ministry of Tourism and Entertainment.
