Del Monte tapped for Mediaset pix

ROME — American-born Italian film director Peter Del Monte will be artistic supervisor on a series of six films for TV by young filmmakers for leading Italian commercial TV player Mediaset.

The project is part of a push by Mediaset and its sister company, film division Medusa, to foster new directing talent. Medusa recently pacted with producer Maurizio Totti for three features by fledgling filmmakers, the first of which, by Stefano Reali, is currently in production.

The division also is backing Sardinian director Gianfranco Cabiddu’s “The Son of Bakunin,” which is now shooting, produced by Giuseppe Tornatore.
