[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay presents an overview of the relationship between the cinematography of Democratic Germany and Italy, reports that perfectly exemplify the contradictions of the Cold War years. Three lines are identified: the epigones of the exchanges of the prewar era in the immediate post-war period; the productions of authors close to the PCI since the fifties; the projects (never realized) of large international commercial co-productions.
