Romana Film

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Romana Film was an Italian film production and distribution company founded in 1946 by Italian film producer Fortunato Misiano. It was founded in Rome immediately after World War II ended. The production activity decreased after the death of Fortunato, which would eventually be continued by his son Franco Misiano.

Logo (July 20, 1963-1967)

Visuals: Set on a partly cloudy setting, there are two silhouettes of St. Peter's Basilica and the Colosseum. A light from the front eventually illuminates the two buildings, which is followed by a gold "ROMANA" appearing between the two buildings letter by letter, and once it is complete, "FILM" in the same format wipes in underneath, along with "PRESENTA" underneath said text performing the same motion.

Variant: An early variant of the logo exists where the setting is slightly darker, the buildings are slightly further apart, and the clouds are illustrated differently.

Technique: Cel-animation and rostrum camera.

Audio: A majestic orchestral fanfare with bells heard each time the letters in "ROMANA" appear.

Availability: It was seen on some films produced by Romana Film.
