Example text

The film (now lost) was remade in 1947 by Camillo Mastrocinque with Vittorio De Sica in the role of a blind gentleman who helps an unfortunate girl. Another Neapolitan, Elvira Notari, made approximately 60 films between 1906 and 1930. Notari was inspired by themes of the everyday life of the common people of Naples, especially of women, dealing with their passions and unhappiness. Elvira Notari also starred in films as an actress but her greatest contribution was as a director in films such as Bufera d’anima/Soul Storm (1911), Medea di Portamedina/ Medea of Portamedina (1919), E’ piccerella/The Little Girl (1922) and ‘Nfame/ Infamous (1924).

Sociologically these trends began with the movement toward the cities, an internal migration away from the countryside caused by demographic increases. Mussolini did achieve some successes in controlling the economy during the Great Depression. ” Whatever the cultural or sociological interpretations, a main legacy of Fascism was an increase in the extent of state control in Italy, which fostered a sense of social, political, economic hierarchy for the creation of wealth or social status. Fascism awarded a structural bureaucratic approach to economic and social wealth.

But the regime’s demands did not equal those of the Nazi government on the German film industry or Soviet demands on Russian filmmakers. On the whole, the regime encouraged Italian directors to make films that depicted Italian life in a positive light. The regime did encourage propaganda-style films with themes promoting Italian colonial exploits such as Augusto Genina’s Lo squadrone bianco/White Squadron (1936) or Alessandrini’s Abuna Messias/Cardinal Messias (1939). However intellectuals including Luigi Chiarini, Umberto Barbaro, and Francesco Pasinetti were able to continue their discussions of film theory in journals like Bianco e nero.
