Ferdinando Scarfiotti (6 March 1941 – 30 April 1994) was an Italian art director.
Born in Porto Recanati, Italy, Scarfiotti was graduating in architecture at the University of Rome when he attracted the attention of Luchino Visconti, who asked him to design his stage production of La Traviata for the 1963 Spoleto Festival. Throughout the Sixties, Scarfiotti was responsible for the magnificent 'look' of Visconti's operas and plays.
Soon Scarfiotti was designing for other talents including Franco Zeffirelli and Eduardo di Filippo.
In 1971 the director Bernardo Bertolucci asked Scarfiotti to design the film The Conformist and to help select locations in Rome and in Paris. The look of The Conformist was inseparable from the overall technical design, and Scarfiotti established a unique relationship with Bertolucci and with the cameraman Vittorio Storaro.
Scarfiotti's finest 70mm moments were the now classic opening sequences revealing the Last Emperor, whose fabulous red and gold both established and embellished the glory of the Forbidden City in China. Scarfiotti won the 1987 Academy Award for Art Direction as one of the nine Oscars won by The Last Emperor.
He was, in the words of Paul Schrader, 'the most influential film designer of the last three decades. His work has influenced an entire generation of directors and designers.'

(from The Independent)

I'm a great admirer of his aesthetic.
This is just a glance at his work.
Chronological order.
