The famous Italian director Vittorio Taviani, 1930-2018, has made more than 20 films with his brother Paolo for more than 50 years.

He won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 1977.

"The death of Vittorio Taviani is a great loss to Italian cinema and culture," Italian President Sergio Matarilla said in a statement, praising Vittorio's "unforgettable artifacts" with his younger brother.

The Tavani brothers developed a unique working relationship as they exchanged roles in directing the viewer and never interfered in each other's work. "We have two different personalities, but we are the same," Vittorio said in an interview with The Guardian in 2013. Our choices in life and art are the same.

The Tavani brothers presented high-level literary works to the cinema screen, such as "The Ba'ath" and "The Sun, Even at Night," based on two novels by the famous Russian writer Leo Tolstoy and German filmmaker Johannes Wolfgang von Goethe.

Vittorio was born in San Minato, Tuscany, in 1929, and began his career in the press before he began collaborating with his brother Paulo to bring together documentary films first before turning to the silver screen.
