Summary
This book explores Rome as a site for the making of films and its changing role as a setting for cinematic narrative. A particularly rich case study of a city and its cinema, the book will reach beyond Film Studies and be of interest to readers and students in Art History, Historical and Cultural Geography, Urban History, and Classics. The essays range from early cinema to the present, and discuss both Italian cinema and the work of the many international directors who have used Rome for their films. A diverse set of cinematic representations - from little-known films of the fascist era to Roman Holiday - are placed within the context of the evolving architectural, social and politial fabric of Rome in a period of rapid and often traumatic historical change.--
