Censorship in Italy

When Schmutziger Angel was first released in Italy in 1959 the Committee for the Theatrical Review of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities reviewed the film. In order for the film to be screened publicly, the Committee recommended the removal of the frames in which young Beta - after ripping her shirt - reveals her naked breast. The reason for the restriction, cited in the official documents, is that the sequence is considered to be offensive to decency. The official document number is: N° 30699, it was signed on 25 Nov 1959 by Minister Domenico Magrì.
