Paolo Zelati, born in 1975, graduated in Foreign Languages ​​and Literature at the University of Bologna with a thesis in History of Cinema. Expert and lover of Fanta / Horror Cinema and Literature, he lives in Mantua where he works as a journalist and film critic. Cinephile and, therefore, fetishist, from an early age, Zelati began collecting film posters at the age of 9 and, today, can boast what can perhaps be defined as the largest and most selected collection of Italian posters in the world. The lion's share is certainly played by the section dedicated to American Cinema Noir, made up of more than 700 pieces including 1sheet, 2sheets, 4sheets, posters and original sketches. Another huge section of the collection is dedicated to Exploitation cinema: more than 8000 pieces present and which will soon be published in volumes dedicated to the various sub-genres: Martial Arts, Hard Core, Pop, Horror, Action / Violence, Blaxploitation, Giallos, Mondo Movies, Rape & Revenge etc. etc.

Foreign Posters


Buy, Sell, Trade

This page is dedicated to all collectors like me. From time to time, in fact, I will publish in this section all the material that I am ready to sacrifice. You can find Italian posters, photobustas, foreign posters, action figures and various memorabilia. I am always looking for new material and if you find something interesting you can contact me with your trade proposals. I am essentially looking for Italian posters, photobustas and playbills from the 1930s to the 1960s. But, if you have some interesting pieces, even the 1970s and 1980s can hold surprises. If you are not interested in exchanges but you have some material to sell: contact me freely. As well as feel free to write to me if you have any questions about the posters on display on the site or if you are looking for any particular titles.
