In a Historic Move, Italy Abolishes Film Censorship! No Involvement of Government in Banning Movies Now

With the rise of cinema and art all around the world, some historic moves have been globally taken in the past to maximise the reach of films and other forms of cinema. Italy, however, has a strict censorship in place till now. The legislation that birthed in 1913 was still practised in Italy where the government had the ultimate power to censor and ban movies. But what comes as a historic move, the rule has officially been abolished. In the past, films like Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom and Bernardo Bertolucci’s Last Tango in Paris had been banned by the government. Elton John Slams Russian Censorship of Rocketman’s Gay Sex Scenes.

The symbolically important move for a censorship rule that was de-facto no longer practised is definitively a big step. It is doing away with “the system of controls and interventions that still allowed the state to intervene on the freedom of artists,” said Culture Minister Dario Franceschini after he announced the conclusion of the government’s powers to censor cinema. Hundreds of films from all over the world were banned locally for religious, “moral” and political reasons. 

According to the new order, film distributors will be able to self-classify their own movies based on existing audience age brackets. These brackets will include columns like “over-14″ (or aged 12+ if accompanied by a parent) and “over 18” (or 16+ accompanied by adults). Also, a new commission of film industry personalities, education experts and animal rights activists, will review the film’s classification. 01 Distribution chief Luigi Lonigro, who is head of Italy’s distributors, issued a statement, that said, “It’s an epochal change that the industry was strongly pushing for and will usher in self-regulation.” ’s Manmarziyaan to Not Release in Pakistan for Violating the Censorship Code?

According to a survey by Cinecensura, 274 Italian films, 130 American movies and 321 pictures from other countries have been outlawed in Italy since 1944. More than 10,000 have been forced to cut scenes. Pasolini’s controversial film Salò was banned after a brief run in Italy because it revolved around Marquis de Sade’s 18th-century novel of torture and degradation to Fascist Italy in 1944. Bertolucci’s Tangoeven before it could make it to the theatres.

According to reports, the duchess attended the funeral service from home and sent handwritten notes expressing her condolences to the family. The Duke of Edinburgh died on April 9 at age 99. Shortly after his death, Prince Harry, returned to the UK for the first time since stepping back from his royal duties and moving to California in March 2020. “My grandfather was a man of service, honour and great humour. He was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit, and could hold the attention of any room due to his charm–and also because you never knew what he might say next,” Harry said in a social media statement, on April 12.

“He will be remembered as the longest-reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke. But to me, like many of you who have a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right ’til the end.”

Addressing his grandfather as a “rock” to Queen Elizabeth II, who he was married to for 73 years, he also added, “You will be sorely missed, but always remembered — by the nation and the world. Meghan, Archie, and I (as well as your future great-granddaughter) will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.” On the other hand, Meghan, who is currently expecting her second child with Harry this summer, was advised by doctors not to travel to London.
