Director Giulio Questi was a last minute addition as a director for Amori pericolosi.[4] Questi recalled that Peppino Amato and Moris Ergas were both the initial producers for the film and that Amato died which led to Ergas taking over as the producer.[4] The film was shot in 1961 and only released later in 1964.[4]


Amori pericolosi was distributed theatrically in Italy by Cineriz on 14 August 1964.[3] The film grossed a total of 48,300,000 Italian lire.[3] Film historian and critic Roberto Curti described the films box office presence in Italy as being "passed unnoticed".[5]


According to Curti, critics did not like Amori pericolosi, especially "Il passo" directed by Giulio Questi, with critic Alberto Abruzzese finding it conveying "an old and decrepit theme with a formal refinement that was between mannered decadence and a misunderstood naturalism."[5][6][5]
