Vittorio Nino Novarese

Vittorio Nino Novarese (May 15, 1907, Rome, Italy – October 17, 1983, Los Angeles, California, USA) was an Italian costume designer who found great success in Hollywood after decamping there in 1949. In his first year there he scored an Oscar nomination for his work on the film Prince of Foxes, winning the Academy Award 14 years later for the grandiose epic Cleopatra. He was also nominated twice in 1965 for both The Agony and the Ecstasy and The Greatest Story Ever Told, and won a second Oscar in 1970 for Cromwell.

Novarese was trained as a militarist, but contrary to what one might think from the name, this only gave him the classical training to know how soldiers of different ranks were dressed and armed throughout history.

His daughter is the actress Leticia Roman who starred with John Saxon in The Girl Who Knew Too Much and with Elvis Presley in G.I Blues.
