Who was Andrea Crisanti?
Crisanti studied Art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. He began his film career as assistant set designer to Mario Garbuglia by working on the set of The Great War with Mario Monicelli. Then he worked with other set designers. He debuted in Maciste in Hell by Riccardo Freda, working both in cinema and theatre.
The crucial meeting to his career came in 1970 with Francesco Rosi. He worked on Cinema Paradiso and A Pure Formality by Giuseppe Tornatore, which won a David di Donatello Award. Sicily is one of his favourite places, and he recalled the pomp of seventeenth century Bourbon period for the set of The Council of Egypt by Emidio Greco. Crisanti worked on Michelangelo Antonioni's Identification of a Woman, Franzo Zeffirelli's Young Toscanini, Gianni Amelio's The Stolen Children, and Andrei Tarkovsky's Nostalghia.
