Golden Lion

Biennale logo small.png

The Leone d’Oro (English: Golden Lion) is the highest prize given to a film at the Biennale Venice Film Festival. The prize was introduced in 1949 by the organizing committee and is now regarded as one of the film industry's most distinguished prizes. In 1970, a second Golden Lion was introduced; this is an honorary award for people who have made an important contribution to cinema.

The prize was introduced in 1949 as the Golden Lion of St. Mark. Previously, the equivalent prize was the Gran Premio Internazionale di Venezia (Grand International Prize of Venice), awarded in 1947 and 1948. Before that, from 1934 until 1942, the highest awards were the Coppa Mussolini (Mussolini Cups) for Best Italian Film and Best Foreign Film.

Golden Lion (pub)

The Golden Lion in St Ives, Cambridgeshire is a former coaching inn. Whilst the coaching inn is now more known as a pub and popular night spot, there is said to be a darker secret within its four walls.

The pub dates back to 1605. It has been renovated many times since. In 1610 a family of Gypsy musicians arrived to stay the night. They were on a mission to seek the Holy Grail and had travelled throughout Europe. They had been brought to England after hearing stories of its location within Britain. That night the banjo and flute playing Gypsies stayed at the inn. In the early hours of the morning the caravan parked in the coach hall (now garden area) was burnt to the ground with the two children asleep in it. To this day people staying at the hotel still hear the boy and girl running in the halls at night. There are even stories of the boy and the girl appearing in the mirrors in the bathrooms in the en-suite bedrooms. Stories of the banjos and flutes being played in the night have also been reported.

Each May groups of tourists flock to the pub with the hope of seeing the two Gypsy children, with most sightings appearing in May and June time.
