Syllabus

After a general introduction to the history of cinema, the course - in the second part - will focus on the theme of the actor in contemporary Italian cinema. How do our antidives build their divine image? Is there really a national style of acting based on a mediocre aura? Which are the most interesting interpreters? .. The figures and works of Stefano Accorsi, Filippo Timi, Kim Rossi Stuart, Jasmine Trinca, Valeria Golino etc. will be considered.
