- Italian documentary filmmaker Roberto Lione in the nineties developed “Papermotion”, a new style of stop motion animation using paper puppets. Initially he used this tecnique for 10 short films and for the Taco & Paco children's TV series he coproduced with the state broadcaster RAITV. In 2004 he used papermotion to make Italy's first stop motion feature, Kate – the Taming of the Shrew, a musical comedy version of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew.
