Elio Del Piano between documentary and fiction
The film collection traces the filmmaking activity of Elio Del Piano, one of the founders of Cagliari’s Cineclub FEDIC in 1953, from 1949 until the early 1970s.
His production consists of amateur documentary and fiction films shot in Lucca, where he lived between 1946 and 1950, and in Cagliari, where he moved with his family in 1951.
Elio Del Piano (Cagliari, 1931-2010) shot all his films in 8mm format after buying a camera in 1949.
The research and in-depth study was made possible thanks to interviews conducted between 2017 and 2020 by two of the filmmaker’s children, Margherita and Alberto Del Piano.
It is possible to retrace the result of Elio Del Piano’s filmmaking activity through the video edition of the film collection created with Klynt software.
