Her research interests include Italian cinema, Black European Studies, and postcolonial studies. This presentation seeks to explicate why Federico Fellini in particular, more than any other Italian cultural figure, has been adopted for the marketing of Italian-themed products and services.

Guadagnino depicts Americans living in Italy and a couple with significant age gap, Lee examines a Romanian immigrant working on an English farm where he meets his local love interest, and Jenkins portrays a black drug dealer in Atlanta who eventually reunites with a childhood friend who works as the chef of a diner in Miami. Guadagninos concern for representing gay romances is shared by other Western directors: a highlight of cinematic border crossings and contact zones as a backdrop for negotiating gender and race in professional and personal lives.
But compared to the other films, Call Me By Your Name lacks a critique of class-based social inequality, revealing the limits of Guadagnino and possibly Italian fiction cinema on gay-themed subjects. He broadly researches on migration, mobilities, multiculturalism, media, rhetoric, ethics, masculinity, and meaning-making. My interest, and the focus of this paper, will be to explore whether contemporary transnational productions that have global distribution erase local specificity when making their LGBT characters legible to global audiences.

In this paper, I attempt to engage with these complex questions through a discussion of two films which are self-declared examples of documentaries for social change: Io sto con la sposa and 18 Ius Soli. Il diritto di essere italiani Both films address contested issues of citizenship, national identity, belonging, and mobility. These are matters which, arguably, rate highly among the most pressing concerns of our time. As far as the early production is concerned, the paper argues that the aesthetic of PCIs films was consequent to the subject of the film, and ultimately the outcome of a cultural and political elaboration carried out by the Party leadership and willingly adopted by Party filmmakers.

Come funziona un genere cinematografico Vita e Pensiero, ; Psicologia di unemozione. The central hypothesis of a potential cues framework is that identification with a narrative character is a multidimensional experience for which different dimensions are evoked by different audio-visual cues. The conceptualization of identification distinguishes six dimensions: a spatiotemporal, a perceptual, a cognitive, a moral, an emotional, and an embodied dimension. It will be argued that from a cognitive perspective, a non-empirical approach and an empirical approach could be implemented in order to test the propositions.

Rome: Triumphs and Laments is a metre drawing on the walls of the Tiber, a public communication about the history of the city. Mimicking the film strip on a massive scale, this work takes drawing far beyond its once subservient role as preparation for the main event of painting, sculpture, or architecture.

With a very developed cinematography since the silent period, directors of many countries decided to shoot there during the sound period, especially United States. Peplum, historical films, comedy and melodrama were the genres most developed in these years, especially between and The objectives of this work are to reflect on the tourist image that showed these Hollywood films shot in Italy, to observe which spaces are represented and to know which male and female characters are prototypes.

In particular, the urban scenarios designed for depicting a Roman upper-class group of bored intellectuals, have a pivotal role in the film: the city is indeed one of the main characters.

Sanremo Music Festival
In particular, the analysis of Italian followers comments on Game of Thrones, as reported in their own words, will be instrumental to illustrating the reasons for their passion for the series as well as the main concerns that arise during the viewing of this TV program.
