Sergio Stivaletti

In 1982, Sergio Stivaletti makes his first steps in the world of film by providing the “stop motion” effects for Assassino Al Cimitero Etrusco by Sergio Martino. One year later, he starts his long association with Dario Argento as responsible for the make-up and optic FX for Phenomena. In 1985, his activities bring him on the film set of Lamberto Bava’s Demoni. Stivaletti becomes the number 1 of the Italian special-FX. He supplies the effects for Demoni II (1986) by Lamberto Bava, Spettri (1986) by Marcello Avallone and Opera (1987) by Dario Argento. The television series Fantaghiro employs Stivaletti’s effects in 1991. He meets the new star of the Italian horror film Michele Soavi and creates effects for La Chiesa (1993) and Dellamorte Dellamore (1995). After Dario Argento’s La Sindrome di Stendhal (1996), Stivaletti works for La Vengeance du masque de cire by Lucio Fulci,
