The book covers Italian cinema evolution from 1904 to 2014, ranging from early silent cinema to post-modern television, featuring original essays, interviews and production papers. Despite being focused on Italian most important major company, we have chosen an auterist perspective, investigating how directors' and producers' contributions melt together during the golden age of Italian cinema.

Some highlights from the book:

> Neapolitan silents
> Matarazzo's melodramas
> Mastro5's revue films and musical extravaganzas
> Risi and Comencini's early comedies
> Tourneur and Corbucci's peplums
> Ava Gardner's Italian films
> nouvelle vague Italian style (Olmi, Zurlini, Petri)
> confessions of Visconti's editor
> Aldrich's Sodom and Gomorrah backstory
> De Santis on The Wolves director's cut
> memo from producer Goffredo Lombardo
> unfilmed projects
> 150+ photos
> essays by Roberto Turigliatto, Simone Starace, Bernard Eisenschitz, Sergio Toffetti, Sergio M. Germani, Miguel Marías, Chris Fujiwara, Olaf Möller, Jean Douchet, Stefania Parigi.

Film Comment: "The Titanus retrospective was a gold mine for cinephiles, full of films each deserving an in-depth look (and, in certain cases, rediscovery)".
