Fuoco alle Spalle: an Italian movie poster by Luigi Martinati, 1952. This piece advertises the Italian release of the American film noir "Backfire," directed by Vincent Sherman and starring Virginia Mayo and Gordon MacRae.

Luigi Martinati (1893-1983) was a highly respected poster artist in the Italian "futurist" movement. After World War II he devoted himself exclusively to film posters, a genre in which he is considered a master. His works are characterized by a dramatic portrait in the foreground and a minor scene in the background.
