Rome on Screen
The Film Talk took place at the Warwick Arts Centre, on 27 April 2013, 11am - 3.30pm
From neo-realist masterpieces like Rossellini’s Rome, Open City through Fellini’s La Dolce Vita and Moretti’s cinematic wanderings on his Vespa, the city of Rome has played a defining role within some of the world’s canonical works of film.
In this Film Talk, Dr Dom Holdaway (University of Warwick) offers a comprehensive overview of Rome on film, focusing on shorts and sequences from the great Italian ‘maestri’ and mapping out Rome’s cinematic quarters. The talk was accompanied by a screening of Michelangelo Antonioni’s L’eclisse (1962), and a Q&A with Dom.
