Catherine O'Rawe:
Music, Montage, and Italian Retro Masculinity

Tue, Apr 16, 2013 4:30 PM

Catherine O’Rawe, senior lecturer at the University of Bristol, examines the construction of contemporary Italian masculinity on screen through a nostalgic return to the violence of the 1970s, focusing specific attention on the retro style of Michele Placido’s 2005 gangster film Romanzo criminale and its 2008 TV sequel. Alan O’Leary, associate professor at the University of Leeds, provides a response after the talk.

Cosponsored with Ohio State’s Department of French and Italian.
