Once Franco founded Aetos in 1968 or thereabouts, he seems to have distanced himself from B.R.C.

Okay, now to counter the countless claims

that movie researchers are wasting time on pointless nonsense,

As far as I know, this next movie, The Woman, was never made:
The Variety journalist was confused. Yes, Manolo Bolognini and Franco Rossellini had partnered on Teorema, but for Aetos, not B.R.C. Note also what the above article does not state. Manolo and Mauro Bolognini are mentioned as the movers and shakers of the upcoming B.R.C. productions. Franco Rossellini is mentioned only in the past tense. There is no mention at all of Sergio Corbucci, the C of B.R.C., who had resigned two years earlier. The text seems to imply that Franco Rossellini still had some involvement in B.R.C., especially given that it was once again B.R.C. rather than B.B.C., but he did not have any active involvement. At most he probably participated only in the annual meetings of the board of directors, and maybe earned small royalties on the subsequent B.R.C productions. See how confusing this research gets? And dont expect the tenured professors who write learned tomes on cinema history to know the first thing about any of this. There is no custodian of this knowledge of studios and production houses and the business side and financial side and investment side of cinema, and nobody apart from me seems to care.

This next one, Afyon oppio, was at one time on B.R.C.s plate,
As we can see from the poster this evolved into a coproduction between PAC in Rome and Lyre in Paris.
As far as I can tell, B.R.C. Produzione was dissolved upon completion of this movie.
