Organizer and Chair: Ornella Castiglione, University of Milan-Bicocca
This session explores citations of Italian architecture, sculpture or painting in cinematographic production. Well-known cases of direct pictorial quotation include Pier Paolo Pasolini, Luchino Visconti, and more recently, Paolo Sorrentino. This topic will be addressed from the perspective of moving images (cinema and audiovisual media) and art direction (production and channels of use) by scholars from different backgrounds. Interdisciplinary approaches in this field can help general audiences, as well as students, to maintain an active interest in Italian art and architecture and to enhance, promote, and critique artistic heritage.
