D’Annunzio was strongly opposed to a bourgeois state, preferring the old aristocracy of birth and means, the only class that, in his view, had any cultural validity and understood his poetic need to defend his visions of beauty and genius. D’Annunzio had also been able to identify himself with patriotism and militarism, a mantle he had appropriated after the death of poet Giosué Carducci.

The first president of CSC was the noted film theorist Luigi Chiarini, who would later direct features such as Via delle cinque lune/Five Moons street (1941). Joining him in lecturing were Umberto Barbaro (1902–59), Alessandro Blasetti (1900–87), and Francesco Pasinetti (1911–49). The CSC numbered future directors among its students, including Giuseppe De Santis (1917–97), Luigi Zampa (1905–91), Pietro Germi (1914–74), Roberto Rossellini (1906–77), and Michelangelo Antonioni (1912–). In 1937, the CSC began publishing a film journal Bianco e Nero (White and Black).
