Rigoletto publishes book of essays on Popular Italian Cinema

Assistant Professor of Italian and Cinema Studies Sergio Rigoletto has published a co-edited volume entitled Popular Italian Cinema (Palgrave Macmillan). The collection includes two essays by Prof. Rigoletto: “The Fair and the Museum: Framing the Popular’ (co-written with L. Bayman) [Open Access Postprint] and  “Laughter and the Popular in Lina Wertmüller’s The Seduction of Mimì” [Open Access Postprint].

‘This volume really does represent a shift in thinking on Italian cinema, and the many fine, young scholars who contribute to this book show the direction that future criticism of Italian film will take. It is a valuable contribution to cinema studies on many levels, and I was delighted to have read it.’

– Peter Bondanella, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Comparative Literature, Film Studies and Italian, Indiana University, USA

Prof. Rigoletto has also published an essay, “Contesting National Memory: Masculine Dilemmas and Oedipal Scenarios in Bernardo Bertolucci’s Strategia del ragno and Il conformist” [Ingenta] [Open Access] in Italian Studies. The essay is a reading of the theme of the oedipal conflict between father and son in these two films as an exploration of the problematic relation between Italy’s post-1968 and its fascist past.
