"A New Guide to Italian Cinema,"" "with co-author Carlo Celli, is a
complete reworking and update of Marga Cottino-Jones' popular "A
Student's Guide to Italian Film "(1983, 1993). This guide retains
earlier editions' interest in renowned films and directors but is
also attentive to popular cinema, the films which actually achieved
box office success among the Italian public. The "Guide" introduces
the Italian cinema not just as a 20th century phenomenon but as an
expression of the deeper roots of Italy's historic, cultural and
literary past. Chapters offer historical timelines and commentary
on political and cultural events and trends, followed by discussion
of the Italian cinema industry and key films. Appendices offer
guides to writing about film, statistical data of Italian box
office history and short biographies and filmographies of important
directors. The aim of the book is to provide the cinephile,
student, teacher, or fan with a guide where points of interest may
be identified and studied with clarity.
