Boccaccio '70 is a 1963 vintage Hungarian movie poster.

Vittorio de Sica, Federico Fellini, Marion Monicelli and Luchino Visconti are the four directors of this film which stars some of the greatest actresses of the time: Sophia Loren, Anita Eckberg and Romy Shneider. The artist mixed photomontage and paper cut-out technique on this beautiful poster. 

Four directors tell tales of Eros fit for a 1970s Decameron. Working-class lovers, Renzo and Luciana, marry but must hide it from her employer; plus, they need a room of their own. A billboard of Anita Ekberg provocatively selling milk gives a prudish crusader for public decency more than he can handle. The wife of a count whose escapades with call girls make the front page of the papers decides to work to prove her independence, but what is she qualified to do? A buxom carnival-booth manager who owes back taxes offers herself for one night in a lottery: a nerdy sacristan and a jealous cowboy make for a lovers' triangle. In each, women take charge, but not always happily. (source:
