Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dino Risi (December 23, 1916 - June 7, 2008) was an Italian film director. With Mario Monicelli, Luigi Comencini, Nanni Loy and Ettore Scola, he was one of the masters of Commedia all'italiana. He was born in Milan. At the age of 12 Risi became an orphan and was looked after by relatives and friends of his family. He studied medicine and later became a psychiatrist. Risi started his career in cinema as an assistant director to cinema figures such as Mario Soldati and Alberto Lattuada. Later he began directing his own films and was credited with giving early opportunities to future acting stars such as Sophia Loren and Vittorio Gassman.show more
