FIRENZE III - Stereo-Rama Reels
Florence, capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. One of its most iconic sights is the Duomo, a cathedral with a terracotta-tiled dome engineered by Brunelleschi and a bell tower by Giotto. The Galleria dell'Accademia displays Michelangelo’s “David” sculpture. The Uffizi Gallery exhibits Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus” and da Vinci’s “Annunciation.”
Stereo-Rama 3D reels were produced in Milan, Italy in the 1950s and 1960s by Technofilm. Images were produced on Kodachrome film, so they have maintained their color.
After the first year as a licensee, Technofilm continued in disregard for Sawyer's View-Master patents and terminated license, Stereo-Rama flourished throughout Italy. And today, Stereo-Rama reels remain desirable because of their scenic subject matter featuring locales in Italy, all in good color, plus a wealth of pin-up and nude glamour reels, of which subject matter View-Master refrained. *
