The first edition of the film series Venice in Seoul was inaugurated in 2012 with Pieta by Kim Ki-duk, the film that had just won the Golden Lion in Venice, in the presence of the director, who was often a protagonist on the Lido (The Isle, 3-Iron, The Net) and passed away last December. The project to promote and spread Italian cinema in the world, was launched in 2005 by La Biennale di Venezia in Brazil, with subsequent series organized in Russia starting in 2006, in China starting in 2009, in Korea starting in 2012 and in Croatia, Lebanon and Singapore starting in 2014.
