SAN MARINO - Stereo-Rama Reels
San Marino is a mountainous microstate surrounded by north-central Italy. Among the world’s oldest republics, it retains much of its historic architecture. On the slopes of Monte Titano sits the capital, also called San Marino, known for its medieval walled old town and narrow cobblestone streets. The Three Towers, castlelike citadels dating to the 11th century, sit atop Titano’s neighboring peaks.
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. *
