The canzone napoletana-Neapolitan song-was one of the first international popular musics of the modern era, traveling beyond the city of Naples and the borders of Italy. Its success was due largely to Italian emigrants, who composed, performed, recorded, sold, and consumed the music in the forms of sheet music, piano rolls, 78 rpm recordings, and performances. In Neapolitan Postcards contributors address the unexplored transnational aspects of the Neapolitan song. From its origins in Naples to its arrival-with such classic songs as Core 'ngrato (1911) to Senza Mamma (1925)-in New York City, Neapolitan song gained popularity among a larger American public even as Italian immigrants were victimized as racialized others. Its spread across the world over the course of the twentieth century became evident as singers and musicians like the Andrews Sisters, Charles Aznavour, Count Basie, Elvis Presley, Violeta Rivas, Caetano Veloso, Frank Zappa, and others recorded Neapolitan songs or incorporated it into their compositions.Contributors address a broad range of topics raised by this song tradition, such as its transnational character in Franco Fabbri's examination of the song genre's movement between Naples, Smyrna and Athens; its role as a cultural signifier in Paolo Proto's study of Neapolitan song ethnic stereotypes; its presence on stage in Giuliana Muscio's look at Italian-American sceneggiata; and its place on screen in Giorgio Bertellini's essay on the recently re-discovered film, Santa Lucia Luntana. The book is the first scholarly work that considers specifically the complexity of the international Neapolitan song scene through case studies from Greece, Argentina, the Middle East, and the United States, employing analyses of iconographical sources and international films devoted to the canzone napoletana.
