biography

Massimo Cristaldi began his career in film production in 1974 following the steps of his father, legendary Italian producer Franco Cristaldi.

After his father’s death in 1992, Massimo took over the company, which, besides countless Italian and European awards, is a three-time Oscar winner with Germi’s Divorce Italian Style, Fellini’s Amarcord and Tornatore’s Cinema Paradiso.

Massimo has worked on numerous features of internationally renowned directors and with Cristaldi Pictures still continues Franco Cristaldi’s approach to film-making, focusing on both quality and commercial criteria, thus merging art with industry.

His latest production is L’Amour caché (in competition at Toronto International Film Festival and at Rome Film Festival).
