33. Antonio Sturla

Ferrara 1894-1968
Cinematographer Antonio Sturla was the director of photography for over 100 documentaries, and contributed to the professional training of renowned directors like Vancini and Damiani, as well as three-time Academy Award winner Carlo Rambaldi. The Frabetti Tomb (now the Sturla Avogadri Tomb) in which his remains were laid to rest, is embellished by a beautiful Madonna kneeling in prayer, sculpted by Luigi Legnani. The detail of the half-open door leading to the afterlife is incredibly evocative.
