CINE 340 - Topics in Italian Cinema: Travels, Diasporas, and Drifts (OFFERED IN ITALIAN)

ITAL 380
401 |Stefania Benini |MWF 1-2pm |WILL 214

The theme for this course is a semantic constellation that encompasses several aspects of displacement, between travels in Italy or abroad, examples of Italians’ diasporas abroad and of migrant writers in Italy, and drifts or wanderings in the Italian landscape, from North to South. The course will offer a wide selection of movies and literary reportages or erranze, from Rossellini, to Antonioni and Fellini, from Tondelli to Celati and Gadda. We will explore issues of identity, nomadic subjects, the road and the landscape, the urban space and the countryside, the Grand Tour and the new Italy, between modernity and postmodernity. The course will be taught in Italian.
