Does anyone have info on the printer, A.P.E. Roma, and when they might have been in business?

I found some info that suggests they did posters in the 1930's and 40s but don't know how thorough that time frame is.

I tripped across these...kind of interesting...

HA sold a pair of photobustas for GWTW, in 2010. They are described as being from 1948. What is interesting is that 1948 also appears on the lower right corner of each piece. But imdb suggests that GWTW didnt first play in Italy until 1951.

http://movieposters.ha.com/itm/academy-award-winner/gone-with-the-wind-mgm-1948-italian-photobustas-2-185-x-26-academy-award-winners-total-2-items-/a/510072-52185.s#57445744658

However, when I was looking closely at these, something immediately popped off the page that says these are most likely from the early 1970s. And that was the MGM logo (leo the lion) used on both. This logo was created and used by MGM starting in the 1960s thru 1982, for their film posters. The distributor, CIC, was started in the early 1970s by Paramount and Universal.

In 1973, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer closed down its distribution offices and became a partner in CIC, which took over international distribution for MGM's films.

So is the 1948 more likely a code or cataloging number of some kind?

I only consentrate on the 50s-70s era , sorry......but that is prolly re-issue , yes.

If FAF$M/007 TB is Policrom then 007 GF should be Policrom as well (GF came out early '65 in Italy)

Rotolitografica 1971-77 (Elvis TTWII , 007 LALD , 007 TSWLM)

'72 Dirty Harry ("Dear Bell" , then "PIC") , same with '73 King Boxer (aka Five fingers of death) & '74 Enter Dragon.........

(there is Enter Dragon locandina with blue lettering , although it has DB logo it's by Rotopress.......)

The MGM logo, if nothing else (well, the CIC distributor name, too), are the dead giveaways that it is a 70s RR (imo).

Even the font styles used look much too modern.

"prima di edizione" is irritating collectors for ages now.
It doesn't mean anything really and (mostly) just states to year the film was released
(or any paper was printed) for the first time in Italia...

One has to go by distributor / paper quality / design / printing quality (regarding reproductions, also by the distributors).

Autographs (always assume it's fake until proven otherwise)

Italian posters (always assume it's re-issue cuz it usually is)

I don't have many Italian one Panels, but the ones I have seem to be on very poor quality paper. Is this typical? French paper seems to be higher quality, but maybe it is the examples that I have that are bad.

That's unfortunate. There is some great artwork and I like the size.
