Hello everybody, this is Quentin Tarantino and I'm proud to represent this Retrospective of "Spaghetti western" at the Venice Film Festival. Spaghetti western is one of the greatest genres, as far as I know, in the history of the world cinema and definitely in the history of the Italian cinema. The fact is that they've (spaghetti western movies) never been truly appreciated.

This year at the Venice Film Festival I'm gonna be hosting a Retrospective of Italian western, one of my favourite genres, in the entire history of cinema and in particular of the Italian cinema. A lot of Directors have never got their proper due. In Italy they will get their proper due this september in Venice. I look to see you there.
