Pioneering Italian cinematographer Filoteo Alberini patented his "Kinetograph" during this period.
The Italian film industry took shape between 19, led by three major organizations: Cines, based in Rome; and the Turin-based companies Ambrosio Film and Itala Film.
Other companies soon followed in Milan and Naples, and these early companies quickly attained a respectable production quality and were able to market their products both within Italy and abroad.
L'Inferno, produced by Milano Films in 1911, was the first full-length Italian feature film ever made.No way it can dodge suspicion all the way, so as to create a sensational closure, the screenwriters cobble together an abysmal national TV Channel hijack with the videos made by the sham studio and hastens up to the feel-good coda where reality never bites.The characters are all superficially written, either annoyingly over-the-top like Ebouaney, in the waiting-for-her-check-then-leave mode like Catalano, or I'm-too-pretty-to-be-a-cleaner like Kravos; D' Souza is too righteous to deliver the "we all have a dream" speech, Guskov wavers between a greedy money-grubber and the perspicuous head of the group, Ventitucci is too nice to blame and the villain-like Filippo Timi has no substantive material to improvise.The 1993 made-for-cable feature Italian Movie was released to home video in 2002 due to the presence of actor James Gandolfini from the popular HBO original program The Sopranos.This comedy drama stars Michael Dellafemina as pizzeria owner Leonardo and Caprice Benedetti as his materialistic wife, Anna.
