Simona Bianconi explores the creative process of writing, its communicative aspects and the traces of the writer himself in his creations, as well as the effect writing has on the personality of the author.Through the analysis of texts by six outstanding protagonists of the Italian novel in the first half of the 20th century, Bianconi gives answers to fascinating questions that arise about its creators and encourages the reader to experience and understand writing as a revelation of creativity and life.L'invenzione letteraria può dare vita a un secondo scrittore, a sua volta all'opera. A sua volta colui che comunica al di là della parola, che si assume l'importante responsabilità della creazione, che intende lasciare traccia di sé. Da lui nasce il libro, sua sfida, sostegno, tormento; prova unica o reiterata. Come prende forma nel romanzo di primo grado la figura centrale dell'autore? Come si mostra l'immagine ammaliante del suo lavoro nelle storie di lotta e rinuncia, successo e mediocrità presentate? E qual è l'effetto della scrittura sul personaggio - anche nella sua interazione sociale - che, pure tra gravi ostacoli, la elegge tra le vie da percorrere e ne fa il proprio destino?Attraverso la lettura di testi di sei straordinari protagonisti del romanzo italiano nella prima metà del Novecento, ideatori di altrettanti artisti, donne e uomini, si è tentato di dare una risposta ad interrogativi seducenti che il lettore si pone.. In tal modo, penetrando il motivo dell'esperienza della letteratura, si giunge a toccare la scrittura come rivelazione e sigillo di vita.

In recent years, Italian cinema has experienced a quiet revolution: the proliferation of films by women. But their thought-provoking work has not yet received the attention it deserves. Reframing Italy fills this gap. The book introduces readers to films and documentaries by recognized women directors such as Cristina Comencini, Wilma Labate, Alina Marazzi, Antonietta De Lillo, Marina Spada, and Francesca Comencini, as well as to filmmakers whose work has so far been undeservedly ignored. Through a thematically based analysis supported by case studies, Luciano and Scarparo argue that Italian women filmmakers, while not overtly feminist, are producing work that increasingly foregrounds female subjectivity from a variety of social, political, and cultural positions. This book, with its accompanying video interviews, explores the filmmakers’ challenging relationship with a highly patriarchal cinema industry. The incisive readings of individual films demonstrate how women’s rich cinematic production reframes the aesthetic of their cinematic fathers, re-positions relationships between mothers and daughters, functions as a space for remembering women’s (hi)stories, and highlights pressing social issues such as immigration and workplace discrimination. This original and timely study makes an invaluable contribution to film studies and to the study of gender and culture in the early twenty-first century.
