Director Marco Tulio Giordana's Romanzo Di Una Strage has landed 16 nominations for Italy's David di Donatello Awards just two weeks after the film's release.

The stirring movie, which chronicles the 1969 Piazza Fontana bombing, picked up Best Film, Best Director and Best Producer nods, while leading man Valerio Mastandrea was nominated among the Best Actor hopefuls.

The film was released in Italy on 30 March to huge national acclaim.

Close behind Giordana's film among the nominees announced on Thursday, were Nanni Moretti's comedy Habemus Papam (15 nods) and Paolo Sorrentino’s This Must Be the Place (14 nods), which features Sean Penn as a fallen rock star.

Also up for Best Film: Cesare deve moriere and Terraferma, while Mastandrea will fight it out with Frenchman Michel Piccoli (Habemus Papam), Elio Germano (Magnifica presenza), Fabrizio Bentivoglio (Scialla!) and Marco Giallini (Posti in piedi in paradiso) for the Best Actor award.

The Best Actress nominees are: Donatella Finocchiaro (Terraferma), Micaela Ramazzoti (Posti in piedi in paradiso), Claudia Gerini (Il mio domani), Valeria Golino (La kryptonite nella borsa) and Chinese actress Zhao Tao (Io sono Li).

Roman Polanski’s Carnage, Melancholia, Le Havre, Oscar winner The Artist and Intouchables are all up for the Best European Union film trophy, while Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Ides of March, The Tree of Life and Asghar Farhadi’s Best Foreign Film Oscar winner A Separation will compete for the Best Foreign Film prize.

The awards will be announced on 4 May. »
