La nostra marina da guerra

Our War Navy

Luca Comerio is perhaps the greatest documentary filmmaker in Italian silent cinema. War films have an important place within his immense production, in particular the ones dedicated to the Italo-Turkish war in 1912. Our war navy concentrates on sailors‘ daily life, on work, physical exercise, leisure moments, battle simulations. The video is a copy from the film print preserved in 1912 by the Museum: 35mm, positive, polyester, 212 metres, colour (Desmetcolor), Italian intertitles, silent.
