The industrial cinema of Biella, even in its small production of works, constitutes an interesting case study. On the one hand, for having enriched the history of Italian national cinema – thanks to the rediscovery of works unknown to the general public since they are still preserved in the archives of local industrialists; on the other hand, and above all, it is interesting in the perspective of the study of the transformations of both local landscape (natural transformation) and the related "historical-cultural landscape" (anthropic transformation) produced over time by the contextual and multi-perspective activities. This study outlines a complex psycho-socio-anthropological framework that is reflected in these works, both directly and indirectly, in different ways, starting with the impact of the historical period and the film language of the time.
