From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

1st Logo (3 December 1963-10 March 1967, 22 March 1973-16 November 1979)

Visuals: Over a gray (blue in 1967) background, the logo starts with the target on the left. The circles with the letters inside appear in the bullseye in each order: "c", "i", "d", "i", and "f". The words in Italian appear on the right,


The words transition to another word "presenta".


  • On Even Angels Eat Beans, it immediately proceeds to the word "presenta" fading in after the letters/gunshots stop appearing.
  • On La Patata Bollente, the background is in a more saturated blue and the target along with the text are in white.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: Five gunshots, and then the signature theme of the Titanus logo.

Audio Variants:

  • On Even Angels Eat Beans, six gunshots that correspond to the target and letters appearing were heard before heading to silence.
  • Nonr for La Patata Bollente

Availability: So far, it's only been seen on Outlaws of Love (its first appearance), a 1960's reprint of ¡Que viva México!, Even Angels Eat Beans, Requiescant', and La Patata Bollente.

2nd Logo (21 December 1967)

Visuals: Essentially a print version of the "cidif" target in white with "PRESENTA" also in white underneath against a red background.

Technique: None.

Audio: The film's opening theme.

Availability: So far, it's only known to appear in Day of Anger.

3rd Logo (3 March 1982-28 October 1983)

Visuals: On a green background, the same target but in pink zooms in, shortly stopping after a few seconds. The ring then disappears while rotating counter-clockwise for a thick, red "C" with the other half cut off to appear in front of the screen and zoom in to the center. This is followed by "IDIF" in red performing the same motion, sitting beside the thick "C" one by one, whereas 2 rings resembling the same target used in the previous logos, albeit in dark blue, forming the newer "CIDIF" symbol. Then, "Consorzio Italiano Distributori Indipendenti Film" in pink wipes in below the symbol, and stays static for a few seconds. It then abruptly disappears, where lastly, "presenta" in pink starts to write in at the bottom-right corner in a script font.

Technique: Cel animation.

Audio: A somewhat dramatic orchestral fanfare.

Availability: Seen in Cercasi Gesù and Il petomane.
