I'm still working on the list. I am researcging and trying to find the more iconic Campeggi posters, its not an easy task as I have not been able to find a guide.


If you are familiar with his work and want to provide a resource or nominate a favourite image you are more than welcome.

I put this four more recognizible works first. There is a An American in Paris poster he made, but unfortunately it is not uploaded in the IMDb.

Gone With The Wind is an iconic poster. Would go with it. Second would be Ben-Hur

Casablanca.  Though to be fair, I am not that much of a fan for this painterly style of movie poster.

All posters I could find have been added, there are several were he probably worked, but I was not able to confirm it, and others I found in other sources but that do not appear on IMDb.


As for my vote, checking the gallery the one that appealed to me the most was from Sombrero.

'Good poll and nice tribute. 'Sombrero's' poster would get my vote. 

May I suggest one small edit to the intro?

Italian artist Silvano "Nano" Campeggi started his career as a poster designer working for MGM in Gone With the Wind; this would only be the first step in a long career where he produced the poster and advertising graphics for over 3000 films.

('Just replaced the comma after 'Gone With  the Wind' with a semi-colon. I put it in bold but I'm not sure if you'd be able to see it.)

Allright, I'll make the change. Nice to see we agree on Sombrero.
