Nearly five decades later, photos, along with all the documents related to the criminal case against Last Tango in Paris by the late Bertolucci — who was tried alongside actors Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider, as well as the producer Alberto Grimaldi and the film’s distributor, Ubaldo Matteucci — are about to be rendered public in digitized version.

At the request of the court that had custody of the case, the Bologna State Archive has completed the restoration of some 2,000 pages of documents bound in two files. The material will be viewable by the end of October.
