BIOGRAPHY OF DARIO ARGENTO

Film director. Since he was a boy he has been a great fan of American cinema. His father, Salvatore, is a film producer, and his mother is a well-known photographer among the divas of the 1940s and 1950s. After graduating from classical high school, he began working in the cinema first as a critic, then (with Bernardo Bertolucci), as subject writer and assistant to Sergio Leone with whom he collaborated on the screenplay of ‘Once upon a time in the west’ (1968). His directorial debut was in 1970, at the age of 27, with ‘The bird with the crystal feathers’ and in the meantime he became the father of his first daughter, Fiore, with his first wife Marisa. The film was so successful that it was considered the progenitor of the Italian crime film. This is followed by ‘The nine-tailed cat (1971), and’ Four gray velvet flies’ (1972). After having crossed over the historical trend with ‘The five days’ (1973), Argento returns to horror with ‘Profondo rosso’ (1975), followed, in 1977, by ‘Suspiria’ played by Daria Nicolodi, his life partner and mother of his second daughter, Asia, born on 20 September 1975.

In 1987 he directed ‘Opera’ before moving to the USA where he shot the episode ‘The black cat’ of the film ‘Two diabolical eyes’ (1990) and the thriller ‘Trauma’ (1993), a distressing story of an anorexic girl. played by her daughter Asia. ‘The Stendhal Syndrome’ (1996), always starring his daughter Asia, marks his return to Italy, followed by ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ (1998).
