Luce rossa. La nascita e le prime fasi del cinema pornografico in Italia.

Post by Cinema Italiano » 21/10/2021, 15:02

I was wondering if anyone has a copy of the book written by Andrea Napoli and Franco Grattarola: "Luce rossa. La nascita e le prime fasi del cinema pornografico in Italia". If yes, before to buy it, I would like to ask for a tip. Do you think it can be useful in order to increase my knowledge about the hardcore actresses working also in genre films ? For example, Marina Frajese or Guia Lauri Filzi ? Are there any pics and non hardcore filmographies ? Or the book is only about their red light careers ? In case you own a copy and would like to tell me anything, thank you in advance.

I have it too and am proud to say I am listed in the acknowledgements section since made some small contributions. I think it's a great book with very informative biographies for the actors. It's not entirely free of errors and there are obviously several uncredited roles that have been missed (which is to be expected), but there's a lot of great info with many uncredited roles noted and specified. I think it's a great work.

Thank you very much for your information, Johan, and congratulations on contributing to it. I had considered the possibility that it is not completely error free, as it is normal with biographies of not very well known actresses who worked between 40 and 50 years ago. I'll buy it.
