ArchivioKubrick is a database of detailed information about the life and work of director Stanley Kubrick. It is a project I started in 1999 with the purpose of collating interviews, reviews, articles, photographs and videos about Kubrick in one single place. Since 1999 I have searched magazines, newspapers, books, broadcast media, and the internet for all extant material. ArchivioKubrick is an ongoing repository for this research.

AK main site is written in Italian, and unfortunately I do not have sufficient time to create an additional English-language version. For non-Italian visitors, I have instead produced this abridged English version containing the most significant elements of the Italian site: rare texts, a reviews archive, the lists of LOOK photographs and Kubrick's interviews, and scans of the Vintage material. All the real treasures I found are available in English, or will be translated as soon as possible.


A complete list of Kubrick's early assignments as a photojournalist  for LOOK magazine, and a 50-years reviews archive for each film.


The most comprehensive list of Kubrick's interviews ever compiled, plus press releases, private letters and assorted quotations.


A collection of interviews with Kubrick's friends and collaborators, about the director's personality and artistic vision.


High resolution scans of vintage material, such as articles published in old magazines and promotional material for each of Kubrick's films.
