Overview Italian Film examines the extraordinary cinematic tradition of Italy, from the silent era to the present. Analyzing film within the framework of Italy's historical, social, political, and cultural evolution during the twentieth century, Marcia Landy traces the construction of a coherent national cinema and its changes over time. Examining the cinematic uses of landscape, architecture, regional, rural, and metropolitan locales, and representations of social customs and rituals, Landy also discusses genres, stars, narrative and anti-narrative forms. This study traces how social institutions as well as Italian notions of masculinity and femininity are dealt with in cinema and how they are central to the conceptions (and misconceptions) of national identity. It also demonstrates the vital links between Italian film and other art forms, including opera, popular music, literature, and painting. A comprehensive survey of this subject, Italian Film also offers fresh readings of key films from each period surveyed.
