From 1910s to early 1920’s along with several other Italian artists he collaborated with the Italian cinema industry creating works of art and sets for films. He spent time in Paris and during the 1930’s moved to Egypt where he became Director of the Fine Arts School in Cairo. Innocenti died in Rome on January 4, 1961. Examples of his work can be found at the Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, the Brooklyn Museum and the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.
