PERUGIA - Stereo-Rama Reels
Perugia is an Italian city and the capital of the Umbria region. It’s known for its defensive walls around the historic center. The medieval Priori Palace exhibits regional art from the 13th century onward. Looking onto Piazza IV Novembre, the Gothic cathedral houses Renaissance paintings and frescoes. In the square's center, Fontana Maggiore is a marble fountain with carvings of biblical scenes and zodiac signs.
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. *
