Carmelo Pompilio Realino Antonio Bene, widely known as Carmelo Bene, was an Italian poet, actor, film director, and screenwriter. He was also a famous stage director, actor, and writer. He was a significant exponent of the Italian avant-garde theatre and cinema. Bene was born in Campi Salentina, Puglia, Italy, on September 1st, 1937.

In collaboration with French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, Carmelo Bene wrote the essay “Superpositions” in 1979. In 1984, the Italian filmmaker's play Adelchi was published. The Italian filmmaker also wrote the screenplay of A Boccaperta in 1970. His known works were Our Lady of the Turks in 1968, One Hamlet Less in 1973, and Salomè in 1972. Salomè was a film where Carmelo Bene directed, wrote and acted; it also starred Lydia Mancinelli, Alfiero Vicenti, Donyale Luna, Veruschka von Lehndorff, Piero Vida, Franco Leo, and numerous other stars.

His partial filmography includes Oedipus Rex, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini, in 1967, Nostra Signora dei Turchi (Our Lady of the Turks) in 1968, Capricci in 1969, Catch as Catch Can in 1968, Don Giovanni in 1970, The Syndicate: A Death in the Family in 1970, Necropolis in 1970, Tre nel mille in 1971, Salomè in 1972, One Hamlet Less in 1973, and Claro in 1975.

Carmelo Bene married Giuliana Rossi in 1960 and got divorced in 1965. The international filmmaker was married again in 1992 to Raffaella Baracchi, and the two remained together until the day he died. He also had two sons, one from each wife. Carmelo Bene died of heart disease on March 16th, 2002, in Rome, Lazio, Italy at the age of 64.

Film/Art Gallery’s collection of original Carmelo Bene movie posters include a set of six Italian photobusta posters for odd, obscure film Salome, based on the play by Oscar Wilde and starring the beautiful doomed American fashion model/actress Donyale Luna (in the title role as Salome) and the German supermodel Veruschka von Lehndorff (billed as ""Veruschka""). Our Carmelo Bene poster collection also includes the Italian one sheet for the film, as well as the Italian 2 Foglio.
