Abstract:

Pagina pellicola pratica: Studi sul cinema italiano is not, as the title might suggest, a cohesive collection of articles on the theory of film adaptation of literary works. The book is an anthology of texts which gathers in a volume differing essays which were stimulated by a series of study seminars on the topic of Italian Cinema and its relationship with literature held at the University of Chicago. As Rebecca West concedes in her Prefazione, "[s]e il punto di partenza è stato uno studio sul rapporto cinema-letteratura, il punto di arrivo è più eclettico." Yet researchers interested in cinema studies and aspects of Italian visual culture in general should not feel disappointed as the essays offer numerous useful insights into a variety of themes, filmic elements and authors.The collection of essays is framed by two perceptive introductory accounts by Gian Piero Brunetta on "L'identità del cinema italiano" (11) and on Pirandello's presence in modern cinema (23). Though writing a broad and general background account, Brunetta manages to clinch certain key points that are both lucid and accurate. The Italian cinema industry, in his view, finds remarkable cohesiveness and strength in the "debolezza costituzionale di alcune strutture portanti" which he discerns in the state of "permanenza lunga in mezzo al guado, in una dimension sospesa tra artigianato e industria" (11). A non-critical yet valuable diary by director Vanna Paoli at the conclusion of the book provides admirable insights into the creative processes of film making.
