Curated by Stephen Gundle, Karl Schoonover (Department of Film and Television Studies, Warwick), Stefano Baschiera (QUB) and their research assistants Barbara Corsi and Marina Nicoli, in conjunction with the Cineteca di Bologna, it explores the contribution made by producers to the rise of the Italian film industry after World War Two.

The exhibition draws on project research to examine - via photographs, documents, objects and historical press material - the role of producers including Franco Cristaldi, Giuseppe Amato and Italo Zingarelli in the making of several milestone films including La Dolce Vita, Cinema Paradiso and the spaghetti western They Call Me Trinity. The aim is to shed light on the crucial roles played by these crucial, but often neglected, figures.
