Flavio Mogherini

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flavio Mogherini (born March 25, 1922 in Arezzo , † April 23, 1994 in Rome ) was an Italian scene and costume designer and film director .


Mogherini studied at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia and worked from 1947 to 1973 on numerous films as a scene and costume designer. He met many of the most important directors in his country, including a. Pier Paolo Pasolini (for Accattone 1961) and Mauro Bolognini (for Das Haus in Via Roma in the same year). His special skills were just as evident in costume films (such as The Voyages of Ulysses , Attila, The Scourge of God and The Incredible Adventures of Hercules ) as well as in tasks that accurately reproduce Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (as inClumsy makes a career and it was night in Rome ) or the contemporary milieu (as in Pasolini's films).

With the insignificant Anche se volessi lavorare, che faccio? Mogherini made his debut as a director and until his death made a number of films based on his own scripts, which had some success with audiences, not least because of their optical ingenuity.

He is the father of Federica Mogherini .
