Style

Piero Regnoli's work as writer often dealt with themes of eroticism, such as in Brunello Rondi's Tecnica di un amore (1973), Roberto Bianchi Montero's Caligula's Hot Nights (1977) and Mario Bianchi's Satan's Baby Doll (1983).[3][5] When Regnoli worked as a director, his work still contained these themes but was often toned down.[3]
