Biography

Sanremo, Liguria, Italy
Italian director Mario Bava was born on July 31, 1914 in the coastal northern Italian town of San Remo. His father, Eugenio Bava (1886-1966), was a cinematographer in the early days of the Italian film industry. Bava was trained as a painter, and when he eventually followed his father into film photography his artistic background led him to a strong belief in the importance of visual composition in filmmaking.

Other than a series of short films in the 1940s which he directed, Bava was a cinematographer until 1960. Read more...
