Franco Delli Colli

Franco Delli Colli (2 March 1929 – 22 April 2004) was an Italian film cinematographer. Born in Rome, he began to work in the late 40s with his cousin Tonino Delli Colli as camera operator and assistant cinematographer, and signed with him dozens of films, including Dino Risi's Poveri ma belli, Pier Paolo Pasolini's Accattone and Mamma Roma and Luchino Visconti's The Leopard. In early 60s Delli Colli started his career as director of photography, working mainly in genre films; his credits include Pupi Avati's Balsamus and Zeder, Giulio Questi's Django Kill, Lamberto Bava's Macabre and Sidney Salkow's The Last Man on Earth. In early nineties he retired from cinema to dedicate himself to design a right lighting to improve the appearance of the most famous and frequented places in Italian art cities.
