Giuseppe Antonino Biondo e la fondazione dell’International Recording

Paolo Biondo, Ilario Meandri


Giuseppe Antonino Biondo (1899-1988), a US citizen of Italian origins, was one of the most important entrepreneurs in the fields of discography and film sound post-production in Italy. A leading figure at American RCA, G.A. Biondo moved to Rome during the 1950s, where he founded RCA Italiana and, a few years later, International Recording, which became one of the main post-production companies in Italy until the 2000s. These operations deeply impacted on the technological and industrial setting of Italian cinema. In this essay we recall G.A. Biondo’s early years in the US and we deal with the chain of events that led to the birth of International Recording.
