Back to 1983: Christmas Holidays was released in cinemas, a film that photographed an era: the "Cortina da bere" – Milan's Dolomite counterpart – and its myths, told through the shrewd gaze of the Vanzina.

40 years later, on the weekend of 15 to 17 December 2023, the Hotel de la Poste together with the Nations Award, pays tribute to Enrico Vanzina, and through him to a historical period that evokes economic boom and lightheartedness. "Light" times, in which a lifestyle dominated by Made in Italy began to assert itself: the great Italian fashion brands became status symbols and conquered catwalks and covers; Milan competed with Paris and London, projecting a happy, winning, dynamic and colorful image. In New York, Madonna launched her first album, climbing the charts. Italians rediscovered, after the years of lead, lightness and the pleasure of showing off a unique style.

Gherardo Manaigo, director and owner of the Hotel de la Poste, already a location for many of the films set in Cortina, as well as a symbol of the Cortina of yesterday and today, recalls: "The Vanzina brothers have a double merit for us: at that time they relaunched our tourism and, at this time, the film becomes an invitation to remember how we were, definitely more carefree. Together with Enrico Vanzina we want to tell our bond with a period completely different from today's reality. The '80s are just a nice memory, but we can't forget how Cortina's fame was also nourished by Vanzin's self-irony".

On the days when the winter season kicks off, between ski slopes and bombardini at the refuge, a sui generis event is celebrated. The Hotel de la Poste – which a very young Claudio Amendola, in the role of Mario Marchetti, mistook for a post office – takes a weekend-long journey through time. Enrico Vanzina will receive the Nations Award for Lifetime Achievement: "an act due to the amazing career of Enrico Vanzina, an eclectic filmmaker, ironic and refined interpreter of the sociological phenomena that have crossed our country in the last 40 years, explains Michel Curatolo, President of the award created in the seventies by the late film critic Gian Luigi Rondi, created to reward Italian and international cinema. skilfully grasping its strengths and weaknesses... Best wishes, Master, with gratitude!" If at the time - recalls Roberta Alverà, deputy mayor and councillor for tourism of the Municipality of Cortina d'Ampezzo - our locality was marked by a narrative made up of clichés in which the inhabitants and regular visitors did not identify, after some time it is possible to evoke that chapter as a fresco of that era, and see the changes in habits and ways of taking holidays that have taken place in these 40 years, aware that Cortina's tourist offer remains transversal to fashions". On Friday, December 15th, the cutting of a "monumental panettone" for charity (ironic evocation of the term cinepanettone), at 19.30 pm, DJ set by Riccardo Piermattei dedicated to the soundtrack of the film, with all the hits of the time. The highlight of the evening was a concert-show by Jerry Calà and the Jerry Super Band, with "Non sono bello... I like it!" The show that takes up the memorable phrase of the unforgettable Billo – right in the film by the Vanzina brothers. The dress code is naturally inspired by the legendary 80s: trendy brands, sparkling looks. Then the presentation of an award dedicated to Calà followed by a DJ set by Max Cassani, journalist of "La Stampa" and creator of the evening "Wild Boyz!", the first 80s one-night in Milan. Saturday, December 16 in the snow-capped Dolomites, ski race in perfect 80s style and strictly vintage equipment. Appointment on the slope in front of the Chalet Ria de Saco with the first Chalet concept designed by Franz and Daniela Kraler, which today hosts events organized in collaboration with the major fashion houses. Lunch by Michelin-starred chef Graziano Prest: resident chef of Ria de Saco and chef of Tivoli. Already Chef of Casa Italia at the Beijing Olympics in 2020 and at the Tokyo Olympics in 2022, Graziano Prest is an ambassador of Ampezzo cuisine. In the evening with Enrico Vanzina around the piano, cast members and friends related to the film gather. Special guest "Gugliemo" Rossi Scota who made his debut in the music world in 2019 with a piece dedicated to Vanzina's Christmas Holidays.
