    The 1962 Venice Film Festival ran between 25 August and 8 September 1962.

    "Milko Skofic" should read Mirko Skofic (3 changes needed, inc tags).

    "Eriprando Viscounti / Visconti" - it's Visconti.

    "Bertolucci" is Bernardo Bertolucci.

    "De Chirico" is Giorgio De Chirico.

    "Rizzoli" is Angelo Rizzoli.

    "Minister Folchi Paola of Belgium" - it's actually the Italian Minister of Entertainment at the time, Alberto Folchi. He's seen in the clip at 07:01 - here's a photo of him for comparison......
