Bigazzi, Luca

(1958-)
   Cinematographer. One of the most prolific and respected of the new generation of cinematographers to emerge in Italy in the last twenty years, Bigazzi worked on television commercials before making his debut as director of photography on Silvio Soldini's Paesaggio con figure (Landscape with Figures, 1983). In the years that followed, he photographed practically all of Soldini's subsequent films, including the extremely successful Pane e tulipani (Bread and Tulips, 2000), as well as collaborating with most of the young directors of the New Italian Cinema, in particular with Mario Martone on Morte d'un matematico napolitano (Death of a Neapolitan Mathematician, 1992) and L'amore molesto (Nasty Love, 1995), with Michele Placido on Un eroe borghese (Ordinary Hero, 1995) and Un viaggio chiamato amore (A Journey Called Love, 2002), and with the iconoclastic duo Daniele Cipri and Franco Maresco on Lo zio did Brooklyn (The Uncle from Brooklyn, 1995) and the controversial Totb che visse due volte (Toto Who Lived Twice, 1998). Some of his most impressive work has been done on the films of Gianni Amelio, with Bigazzi's cinematography on Amelio's Lamerica (America, 1993) being particularly praised and recognized with the award of both a Nastro d'argento and a David di Donatello.
