Commedia all’italiana

The Commedia all’italiana combines the tragic and comic in a way only Italians know how. Poverty, misery, marriage, old age and death feature in these very dramatic, and sometimes tragic, comedies. Adalgisa Serio will introduce the comedies of directors such as Pietro Germi and Mario Monicelli in this examination of Italian cinema and culture. Screenings include I VITELLONI (see SEE ALSO link on the left hand side of this page)
Led by Adalgisa Serio, Italian lecturer at MANCAT & CDLCI and Language Teaching advisor for Italian.
