I have this poster for the film but there doesn't seem to be much information out there.  Luigi Cozzi directed and a decent cast including Irene Miracle, Erika Blanc, and Daniela Giordano. Has anyone seen it?

Did you translate that yourself or is that an official English title for the film?

No, I can't find any information on any releases outside of Italy.  I was searching through the forums to be sure a topic hadn't already been started on the film and I saw someone (think it was Jonny actually) call it that. 

I haven't been able to find much on this at all but I did track down a 3 minute clip where someone had pieced together all the nude scenes so I guess that's a small victory  :-\

Just doing some quick research and it seems that 'La portiera' means back door/rear/behind (I think) which makes me think the title is The Nude Behind? The Naked Arse, The Bare Bottom etc...

Any Italian speakers shed any light on this?

According to Cozzi an alternative version of the film featuring 4 or 5 minutes of hardcore footage was shown in some Italian cinemas at the time of its release.

I looked through a couple of online dictionaries and if they only list one definition it is usually "door" but some have "caretaker" or "concierge", specifically female, as an alternate definition.

Here's a few screenshots from a fairly nice looking copy of the Italian version which arrived in the post this morning.

Nice one!

The translation of the title would be the nude (or naked) concierge/caretaker imho.
As mentioned above.

I'd say 'The Nude Porter' is actually spot on.

That translation seemed to work for Liliana Cavani - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071910/

Be careful with 'wordreference' (online dictionary) It IS the best dictionary available online (for Italian > English translation) but it still misses a lot of things - Often quite obvious words that leave you scratching your head thinking "Why the fuck isn't that there?!"

In this case they list 'Caretaker' and 'Concierge' but not the more obvious direct translation 'Portiera' > (female) 'Porter'.
