Itala Film

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Compiled by


Itala Film was an Italian production company founded by industrialists Carlo Rossi and William Remmert in 1905. The company would enjoy major growth over the years with film pioneer Giovanni Pastrone joining and reorganizing the company and it establishing an office in New York City. At this point, the studio produced successful historical epics such as Cabiria. However, in 1918, Pastrone lost control of Itala and it was later folded into the Unione Cinematografica Italiana.

(1908-Mid 1910's)

Logo: On a black background, the fancy, cursive words "Italia Film" are in an arc and above the word "TORINO", all while inside a thin circle.

Variant: Depending on the movie, the logo is seen in sepia, a light purple tint, or entirely in bronze.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. It was seen on short films from this period such as The Monkey Race, Le due innamorate di Cretinetti, Per l'onore della marmitta, and Battaglione di sciatori Alpini. Dutch releases at the time or Eyefilm's restored prints may retain this logo or replace it with a different end card or a blank screen.
