Gabriella Pescucci- Once upon a time in America-Sergio Leone

In The age of innocence, Gabriella Pescucci evokes the oppressive climate of high society in New York in 1870, through a calibrated color symbolism, while too tight corsets stifle the desires of the rebel Countess Olenska, the character played by Michelle Pfeiffer.

Piero Tosi- The Leopard-Luchino Visconti
for Claudia Cardinale

Piero Tosi- Death in Venice-Luchino Visconti
for Silavana Mangano

Piero Tosi- Ludwig-Luchino Visconti
for Romy Schneider
The Leopard represents one of the best examples of Tosi's art. To create the costumes he draws inspiration from old photos taken from the albums of Sicilian noble families related to Tomasi di Lampedusa. Historic precision is a principle which the actors themselves must embrace: the bodice worn by Angelica in the famous ball scene was too tight Claudia Cardinale's waist measure.

Danilo Donati-Casanova-Fellini
Danilo Donati-Oedipus Rex-Pier Paolo Pasolini
In Oedipus rex, Donati recreates a mythical ancient era, his costumes look like sculptures tailor made for the characters using feathers copper, wood and straw. Here, there is an improvised feel, as if made with a low budget and out of a limited range of available materials. This helps to give a unique look to the film at once basic and primitive but also unmistakably modern.

Maria de Matteis-War and Peace-King Vidor
for Audrey Hepburn
In War and Peace, to show the psycological evolution of Natasha's character; maria De Matteis decides to draw inspiration from the colour themes and chromatic variability of vegetation. The colours of 22 costumes created for Audrey Hepburn follow the life cycle of a leaf, from light spring green to glittering summer emerald, from early autumn red to winter Havana brown. The famous ballroom dress is ivory in colour and made from satin organza dotted with rhinestones.

Piero Gherardi-Juliet and the spitit-Federico Fellini
for Sandra Milo and Giulietta Masina

Caramba-the Borgias-Caramba
Caramba was tailor and set designer:he designed dresses and made them in his own tailor's shop. The renaissance costumes in the court of AlexanderVI are made according to a method he is very fond of: he uses fabrics with Fortuny prints embellished with gold work.

Gino Carlo Sensani -The Iron Crown-Alessandro Blasetti
Sculptured fabrics and gold work open up for us an unprecedented historic dimension. The heaviness of these fabrics has a medeieval taste, but Sensani makes them lighter and richer with inserts of very thin and mysterious gauze, which conceal disquieting feminine figures.

Vittorio Nino Novarese-Ettore Fieramosca-Alessandro Blasetti
Novarese shows us the warrior hero in his everyday clothes, even when the screenplay imposes the use of armours, Novarese makes them minimal in order for the character to stand out.

Gitt Magrini-The Conformist-Bernardp Bertolucci
for Stefania Sandrelli and Dominique Sanda
With Bertolucci, Magrini revisited different ages with an extremely original style elegant and never intrusive: from the Seventies of Last Tango in Paris to the fifty years of italian history of 1900.
