Imero Fiorentino (1928–2013)


His parents were Sicilian immigrants. Young "Immie" was taken by an uncle to see every new show at Radio City Music Hall. The use of lighting and color impressed him. He read every available book on the subject. In high school, he lighted student shows, including those featuring classmate Vito Farinola, who later took the stage name Vic Damone. See more trivia »

Personal Quote:

They did everything wrong - everything. To fill the shadows around Nixon's eyes, they put a light on the floor in front of him, and it washed him out. And they powdered his beard, which made it worse. [discussing the lighting in the first Nixon-Kennedy debate, in a 1970 interview with the Chicago Tribune]


He was hired to design the lighting for the last three Nixon-Kennedy TV debates, improving Nixon's appearance on camera. He subsequently designed the lighting for more than a dozen national political conventions, Democratic and Republican. See more »
