Elio Ruffo (1921-1972) was an Italian film director and writer. A law school graduate, in the late 1940s he worked both in journalism and film, beginning as assistant director, often on a voluntary basis, for Mario Sequi, Giorgio Simonelli, and others. At the same time, he began to make documentaries (S.O.S Africa, Modelle vestite). In 1954, he wrote the storyline, the script, and directed his first feature film, Tempo d’amarsi, where he dealt with the social problems of Calabria. Twelve years later, in 1966, he made his second film, Una rete piena di sabbia, re-echoing the themes of the previous, a very personal work filled with autobiographical references.
