Biography

Having studied documentary filmmaking at Rome's Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Loy began assisting such directors as Augusto Genina and Luigi Zampa in the early '50s. After making documentaries, he co-directed his first features with Gianni Puccini in 1957, Parola Di Ladro and Il Marito. Admired for his World War II drama Le Quattro Giornate Di Napoli (aka The Four Days of Naples), Loy has worked mostly in television since the late '60s, but has continued helming features such as the comedies Made in Italy and Mi Manda Picone (aka Where's Picone?).
