Set as the Oscars of the cinema, the awards are divided into categories, each of which has a set of three finalists (the nomination) selected by a committee of experts (artists, critics and institutional personalities with President outside the world of entertainment). The winner will be chosen by a jury composed of 300 artists and professionals in the Italian theater. The first phase of the prize (the creation of the nomination) takes place in Rome at the headquarters of the ETI. The artists of backhoe loaders are also received in the Quirinal by the President of the Republic . The second phase will be held in Venice, at the headquarters of the Teatro Stabile del Veneto.
