VITTORIO DE SICA

VITTORIO DE SICA. Bold signature in blue fountain pen on a 6×4 white index card. Very fine condition, with a small magazine photograph affixed at the top left corner. A pencil notation on the reverse side indicates that this autograph was obtained in person in April 1966. John Verzi collection. Actor and director Vittorio de Sica was most often associated with light comedies, but in the years following World War II his career took a major, if brief, detour with his gritty masterpieces, Shoeshine (1946), The Bicycle Thief (1948) and Umberto D (1952).
