FILM POSTER CENSORSHIP by Maurizio Cesare Graziosi
During the second post-war period, film production in Italy increased, as did film poster production. Film publicity materials were submitted to revision as well. Censorship could impose alterations to posters, playbills, and lobby cards in order to cover the nudity of actresses and blot out unseemly objects or representations according to contemporary morals. Censorship would also examine so-called “deceptive titles”, i.e. already distributed films that were re-released under different titles.
