Former newscaster and journalist, now Euro-parliamentarian, Lilli Gruber arrives with the president of the Fondazione Gruppo Coin, Piergiorgio Coin and his wife Franca for the first Gucci Group Award at Palazzo Grassi. Lilli, is in Venice to promote her new Book, America Anno Zero (America year zero- Rizzoli). Franca Coin, who is also president of The Venice International Foundation said "I'm very Happy, and it is also important that Gucci has started this new tradition, hopefully it will revitalize The Venice Film Festival." The prize will be given to an internationally acclaimed artist whose achievements, until now, have been accomplished in areas other than cinema, but whose leap into the world of film has been an auspicious one.
