This course will provide students with a critical understanding of the cinematic representation of Rome in Italian and American cinema, through an in-depth analysis on how locations and mise-en-scene solutions have shaped the cinematic representation of the Eternal City and an exploration of the urban, social and cultural history of modern Rome. Special attention will be given to the relationship between physical spaces and their symbolic
setting in the movies analyzed. Movies will be investigated as aesthetic objects per se but also as tools of historic inquiry, reflecting the evolution of the Italian social environment, economy, culture, values and lifestyles. Main topics are :a) Cinematic Rome After World War II; 2)“Americans” in Rome,
and Rome in America 3) Roman screenscape during the Economic Miracle (Fellini, Pasolini, Antonioni 4)Fellini’s Rome: Cinecittà vs on-location shooting 5) Postmodern and today Rome. From this analysis and investigation students will draw inspiration to realize their final project, that may consist - depending on the student’s major, background and interests -
of a short video/documentary, trailer, teaser, ad or product (accessory,
gadget, leaflet, card) reflecting their experience of the cinematic Rome.
