Much as Slim AaronsMarcello Geppetti was one of the paramount photographers at the 60’s. He was capturing stars shooting at the Cinecittà, a studio at Rome attracting Hollywood stars at that time. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton photo is considered among the thirty most famous photos and his name appears (is listed) next to those of Andy Warhol and Cecil Beaton. His photographs were published on Time Magazine, Life, Vogue and his work was exposed in New York, San Francisco,  São Paul, Milan, St. Tropez, Saint Petersburg to name some. Some of them were sold at Sothby’s. In would definitely love to sneak around Brigitte Bardot or Audrey Hepburn real lives. Enjoy.
