“Historical and artistic beauty is pervasive, it enters every corner of the territory.”
The landscape is a fundamental identity factor for Italy.
The landscape has long been considered a multiplier of the value of The Italian historical-artistic and architectural heritage. Over time the way you tell the landscape changes.
Writers and travelers with their stories have helped to create the myth of the Italian landscape by retracing the narrative matrix back in time of the “great tours” in the 18th and 19th centuries, often describing it as “garden of Europe”, or “beautiful country “.
In the twentieth century the history of the landscape used different forms of artistic expression. Painters, poets, artists, musicians use the landscape to give value to their works. Today we tell it with cameras, cinema, digital.
The report aims to investigate the relationship between landscape and storytelling in cinema, between landscape and characters, between landscape and gaze.
The intent of the report is to analyze the transgressive function that the landscape has often had in cinema, and in particular in the Italian one, in order to make it one of the most interesting experiences of the twentieth century. It’s not just about aesthetics, it’s also about ethics, because learning to look is an important step to get to know ourselves, our world and our limits.
