From the first half of the 1930s, at the peak of Fascist regime's institutionalization of youth culture, amateur film practices were gradually and systematically regimented towards the creation of a politicized experimental cinema. This article discusses this process of institutionalization by presenting and analysing the case of Dolomiti Film, an independent Italian film company managed by the Italian film director Luciano Emmer. The Dolomiti film company was predominantly devoted to Educational and Artistic cinema, and in 1941, it was appointed in the production of short films by the "Scuola di Mistica Fascista" - the most important cultural institution for the Fascist ideology, supported by Benito Mussolini himself.
