Product Overview

"Brunetta is without doubt Italy''s foremost historian of Italian cinema, and this outstanding synthesis of his three decades of research on the subject belongs on every bookshelf devoted to film in general and Italian cinema in particular. It represents not only a brilliant overview but also a comprehensive reference guide to the entire history of Italian film from the silent era to the present."--Peter Bondanella, author of "The Cinema of Federico Fellini"

"This is a brilliant work, eclectic and engaging at every page. With the aim of providing a comprehensive history of Italian film, carefully envisioned from its origins to the present day, Brunetta approaches cinema in its broadest sense, analyzing the influence of all the elements and figures integral to the collaborative venture of filmmaking. He offers a strikingly original discussion of Italian cinema."--Gaetana Marrone, author of "The Gaze and the Labyrinth"
