    SO I just got back to NYC from vacation in italy. Of course I went to Darios shop. I had a lovely long talk with Luigi Cozzi1 He was so friendly. He mentioned that Il Cartaio was originally intended fro TV--interesting. Explains the reposrts Im hearing on the lack of bloodletting. He aslo said Dario should start work on the third "mother" film in july or so...UNBELIEVABLE!!! He was very thankful of my kind words for Contamination. He also mentionted that we are no closer to a 4 flies DVD as the rifghts are in a jumble--damn!

    Anyway it was a delightful visit! The basement museum was small but fun! And I pick up a Prof. Rosso. shirt, and italina F13th shirt, An Agrento book written by Cozzi which he signed for me, hte Demons soundtack cd, and an Aenigma import DVd ( I know its available locally but it was fairly cheap and Ive been meaning to pick up a copy...) I was surpriesed at the unexcititng DVD selection but the conversation with Cozzi more than made up for it!

    On a semi-relatednote I picked up the spanish film the nameless in a regular DVD shop in italy. havent watched it yet....

    I'd really enjoy a description of the inside of the place. Did they sell the Medusa DVD's of Dario's films? Any unique Dario merchandise?

    That's awesome, one of my goals before graduating from high school is to go to Italy. This shop is towards the top of my list. Cozzi sounds like a cool guy, glad you had a good time.

    Thanks guys--it was fun!

    to be honest the shop itself has a lot of american horror memoribilai--you know neca and mcfarlane type stuff, underworld figures stuff like that. They do have a cool line of books-most in italian but some liek the one I got where in english. The DVD colelction was small and none too impressive. Lets put it this way I was telling Cozzi how I enjoyed the Doorway to Darkness DVD and he said they dont even have it there!

    the museum under the store in the basement has a scene from deomns, opera,phenomena and so other weird stuff like an autopsy of an alien and freddy fighting darth vader????

    I have some cool pictures--Id be willing to scan them and post them if someone tells me how--

    Im back at work right now but I could do it tonight....

    Yeah, Profondo Rosso is cool
    The first time I visited it, I had the chance to meet Alan Jones. Cool guy by the way.

    Ims tillw aiting for someone to tell me how to post the pics...oh well...
     
  16. i went to prof. rosso last summer. and i really liked it. cozzi is a very charming man and he speaks english! i bought his movies paganini horror (haven't seen it yet) and star crash (video). he signed them, i took pictures, saw the museum etc. it was really nice to meet cozzi. he gave me two issue's of his magazine "orrore". in italian, but still pretty cool.

    several months later i went to venice. no such shop there, but i did buy some great dvds : the big gundown and face to face and some of lenzi's poliziesco's.

    Here you go:

    Go to ImageShack - you can upload your pictures there for free. When you have uploaded them they will give you the HTML code you can copy and paste in your messages on messageboards like this one. Hope this helps!
