Remembering Giuseppe Accattino

Giuseppe Accattino was born on September 28, 1914 in Genoa, Liguria, Italy. Giuseppe Accattino studied for a degree in architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts, the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome. After a making few documentaries that are now considered lost, he founded after the Second World War, the film production company SILA (Società Italiana Lanci Artistici), with which he in 1949 made his only feature film the Euro-western “Buffalo Bill in Rome” which he directed, wrote and produced. The film, in which he used his girlfriend Elly Starr was, but the critics panned his effort. and until 1951 (and again in 1953) awarded. Another planned project failed.
Accattino died in Rome on April 20, 1979.
Today we remember Giuseppe Accattino on what would have been his 100th birthday.
