The Nastri d'Argento awards, which are also known by their name in English, Silver Ribbons,[1] have been given each year since 1946 by the Italian National Syndicate of Film Journalists (Italian: Sindacato Nazionale Giornalisti Cinematografici Italiani).[2]

From 1950, the main award was Best Director, with no award given for Best Film until sometime after 1991. This is because it was assumed that the best director made the best film. This was different from other countries, where best film was often associated with the producer; at the Nastri d'Argento, a separate category recognised the producer.[2] However "Film of the Year" is now awarded.[3]

For many of its early years, there was criticism that journalists carried too much weight in the voting process, and film critics too little, so that experimental and independent films were not properly considered for awards. In response to this, a breakaway group of press film critics formed the Sindacato Nazionale Critici Cinematografici Italiani [it] (National Union of Film Critics)[2] in May 1971.[4]

The Silver Ribbons ceremony was at first held in February each year, giving awards for films released in the preceding calendar year. In 1971, the committee changed the schedule so that films made up until May each year would be eligible for the awards, which were then granted in June. This was because the David di Donatello awards (the "Davids", or "Dontatellos"), along with many other awards, were given at that time, and summer was considered generally the best months for awards ceremonies. In 1989, the date of the awards was changed back to February and the eligibility set back to the calendar year.[2]

The Davids ceremony took place at the Teatro Antico (Ancient Theatre) until 1980. The Silver Ribbons continued there until 1989, and have continued there from 2000.[5]

From 1992, a new award for short films was established, the Corti d'Argento ("Silver Shorts"), which from 2013 included a section for animated short films.[6]

In 2020, a new set of awards was established, in collaboration with the Campania Region Film Commission in Naples, to honour great international television series (Grandi Serie Internazionali).[7] The inaugural edition of the Nastri d'Argento Grandi Serie Internazionali was held in Naples in September 2021[8][9]

In 2023 the event was held on 1 July.[3] The 2024 event will be held at MAXXI - National Museum of 21st Century Art on June 27.


The Nastri d'Argento are a set of film awards given every year at an awards ceremony at the Teatro Antico in Taormina, Sicily, as part of the Taormina Film Fest,[3][10] except for the Nastri d'Argento Grandi Serie, which are held in Naples.[8][7]
