Lido di Venezia, l'Isola d'Oro della città lagunare.
Venice’s Lido is skinny strip of land, 12 kms long that stretches from the port of San Nicolò to the port of Malamocco. The island separates the lagoon from the Adriatic Sea. It is connected to Venice and the mainland only by vaporettos (waterbuses) or a car ferry. It is the only island in Venice on which cars are allowed.
The Venice Film Festival is the oldest Film Festival in the World, and takes place every year in early September on the Lido island, in the historic Palazzo del Cinema on the Lungomare Marconi, in Venice. The first edition of the Venice Film Festival took place in 1932, together with the 18.Venice Biennale, the major biennial exhibition for contemporary art, after an idea of Conte Giuseppe Volpi.
