Main cast


Screenwriter Riccardo Freda met Francesco Curato and parter of his Carbone, who were trying to produce a film on the Italian painter Caravaggio.[3] The budget of the film became higher and higher. It was shot in 1940 and was released the following year, making it the first film from Elica Film.[3] Freda is credited in the film as having "collaborated to the making of the film."[4] Besides working on the screenplay, Freda acted as the executive producer and worked on the art direction and created a maquette of the port of Ostia.[4]

The film starred Amedeo Nazzari was among Italy's most popular actors at the time and was conflicted with the role when his character Caravaggio did not embrace or kiss any woman in the film, which he thought would put his career at risk.[4]


Caravaggio, il pittore maledetto was distributed theatrically in Italy by Minerva Film on 6 February 1941.[1]
