Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

This celebrated Italian cinematographer began his career at the age of 13 as an assistant cameraman. Within six years, he was shooting his first features. In a career that spanned some forty-five years, Martelli worked with some of Italy's greatest directors from Roberto Roberti to Mario Bonnard. Martelli helped to define the look of Italian neorealism in the post-war years, particularly in his work on Rossellini's "Paisan" (1946) and "Stromboli" (1949). In 1950, he began working with Federico Fellini and was responsible for the beauteous black-and-white images of "La Strada" (1954), "Nights of Cabiria" (1957) and "La Dolce Vita" (1960).
