Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The "dean" of Italian cinema; his greatest contribution to film was the founding, in 1935, of the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, a school where some of the world's greatest filmmakers have learned their art. Chiarini also wrote prolifically on the cinema and created the influential film journal, "Bianco e Nero" (1937). He headed the Venice Film Festival from 1962 until he was deposed from his dictatorial post and returned to academic life.As a director, Chiarini's films were unexceptional, but some of his screenwriting--especially for Vittorio De Sica's "Indiscretion of an American Wife" (1954)--is noteworthy.
