About the Book

Italian cinema has been an influential, sometimes dominant, force in the world of filmmaking for over 100 years. Many world famous actors and production personnel have made their mark on the Italian screen.
This is an encyclopedic reference work and filmography of the nearly 5,000 people, Italians and foreigners, who have been involved in Italian filmmaking since 1896. Each entry provides brief biographical information on the person, along with full filmographic data on his or her films (including acting, directing, producing, camera, music, etc., credits) in Italy or for Italian filmmakers. The annotated title index—itself a major, authoritative research source—includes Italian titles (and year) and English–language titles and alternate titles where appropriate.
