Remembering Mario Fioretti

Mario Fioretti was born on October 16, 1924 in Rome, Lazio, Italy. Fioretti began his career as an assistant camera operator and then as operator, he was committed for a long time in the field of documentary filmography. In 1955 he debuted with a generally light feature film, “Oro, donne e maracas” (1955) directed by Armando W. Tamburella. The following year, 1956, he began in earnest  and has since continued in the business until the mid-1960s, showing his fondness for the works of light comedy.
Fioretti was cinematographer on four Euro-westerns: “Bullets and Flesh” (1964), “Two R-R-Ringos from Texas” (1967), “Black Jack” (1968) and “Judge Roy Bean” (1971).
Mario died in Rome on June 3, 2008.
Today we remember Mario Fioretti on what would have been his 90th birthday.
