Nunzio Malasomma was born on February 2, 1894 in Caserta, Campania, Italy. After graduating with a degree in engineering, he worked as a journalist and, together with Luciano Doria, in 1920 he founded "Fortunio", a journal of film and theater. In 1923 he directed his first movie “Un viaggio nell'impossibile”. The crisis caused by the First World War and from which the Italian film industry struggled to recover, led him to move to Germany where he directed several movies in the 1920s.
With the advent of sound, on his return to Italy manufactures, with some success with the public, a series of romantic comedies he directed actors like Vittorio De Sica and Amedeo Nazzari.
After the Second World War his productions are sporadic and, in 1968, his last film will be his only Euro-western “15 Scaffolds for a Killer” starring Craig Hill and George Martin.
