Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Francesco Rosi (born 15 November 1922, Naples) is an Italian film director. He is the father of actress Carolina Rosi. After studying Law, but hoping to study film, Rosi entered the industry as an assistant to Luchino Visconti on La Terra trema (1948). His emergence as a director is considered to be his 1958 film La sfida (The Challenge, 1958), based on the story of Camorra boss Pasquale Simonetti, known as Pasquale 'e Nola, and Pupetta Maresca. The realist nature of this film also caused a stir alluding to mafia control of the government.
