    Mamma Roma (Cineriz, 1962). Italian 2 - Fogli (39" X 55") Ercole Brini Artwork.
    Anna Magnani, one of the most popular stars of the Italian cinema, starred in this production from neo-realist Pier Paolo Pasolini. Magnani portrays a former prostitute, who is trying to live a better life, and succeeds at creating a new job for herself operating a fruit stand. However, when her sixteen year old son discovers her former career, he descends into petty crime and tragedy ensues. For Pasolini, he felt that post-war and post-fascist Italy was to blame for it's own problems and he had a bleak outlook on life at the time. Ercole Brini did the art work on this poster that captures the moment when Magnani teaches her son how to dance. This is the first original release Italian foglio poster that Heritage has ever offered on this key film of Italian cinema. The poster shows light edge wear, slight fold separations, and an unobtrusive stain in the top border. There is some mild toning in the folds. Folded, Very Fine.

    Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
