About the Author:

Giorgio Bertellini is Associate Professor of Italian and Screen Arts and Cultures at the University of Michigan.

Review:

"Giorgio Bertellini's Reader is an outstanding work, carefully envisioned and engaging at every page." ―Journal of Italian Cinema and Media Studies



"Italian Silent Cinema is an invaluable first collection of leading scholarship on the period in the English language, with an impressive bank of resources... and a welcome eye to enabling future research.... Bertellini’s enthusiasm, twinned with the essays on Italian film archives (Paolo Cherchi Usai), early cinema literature (John P. Welle) and where/how to research both silent films (Ivo Blom) and non-filmic materials (Luca Mazzei), will doubtless prove to be useful and influential to future
scholars." ―Italian Studies



"[P]resents 30 essays on individual companies, stars and genres, the history of Italian film historiography, and the challenges of archival access." ―COMMUNICATION BOOKNOTES Qtly



"This overflowing anthology achieves the near-impossible – in detail and aggregate alike a rich comprehensive examination of Italian silent cinema that is at once historical and transnational, providing approaches that identify and clarify the varied contexts for films’ emergence, the products, and the artistic, commercial and socio-political impetus that propelled a vibrant national film culture.Giorgio Bertellini’s book is a gift to the silent film novice (who may not fully grasp this editor’s largesse) and a trustworthy vademecum for the advanced scholar who will be aware of how much has been previously overlooked and which now awaits closer study." ―David Mayer, Emeritus Professor, University of Manchester



"[T]he eagerly anticipated publication of Italian Silent Cinema: A Reader has finally arrived, and it does not disappoint. A veritable labor of love, Bertellini’s lavishly illustrated and masterfully edited volume provides scholars with an essential resource for understanding and exploring Italy’s film culture between 1905 and 1931." ―Annali d’italianistica



"This is a lavishly produced book, with a gorgeous cover, wonderful illustrations throughout, and excellent editing.... Including an extensive bibliography, this is an extremely rich, well-done volume.... Highly recommended." ―Choice



"This volume is a major critical and historical reassessment of an important but sometimes overlooked era in Italian filmmaking. For the reader who thinks neorealism of the 1940s marked the entry of Italian film on international screens, this book will be a revelation. The specialist reader will benefit from the book’s inspired emphasis on creating a dialogue between Italian scholars and other film experts from across the globe. The result is that―like its subject―this carefully crafted, copiously illustrated anthology is a marvelous achievement!" ―Gaylyn Studlar, David May Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Director, Program in Film & Media Studies, Washington University in St. Louis



"This wide-ranging and original volume succeeds in its aim of silencing, once and for all, the familiar story that reduces Italy’s cinematic legacy to a few historical epics like Cabiria and Quo Vadis while awaiting Italian cinema’s ultimate deliverance in post WWII neo-realism.The extraordinary thing is that it does so by maintaining a balance between rigorously detailed archival materials, historical specificity, and theoretically acute interpretive analyses. The result is a fascinating reconsideration of the conceptual models that have been foundational for histories of film and visual culture in English-language studies, and an essential reminder that our ability to assess cinema’s past depends on a commitment to international collaboration and translation. Italian Silent Cinema: A Reader represents the very best in film historical scholarship today." ―Jennifer Bean, Director of Cinema and Media Studies and Associate Chair of the Department of Comparative Literature, University of Washington



"Italian Silent Cinema:A Reader is an incredibly rich text, a must-read for anybody interested in studying the beginnings of cinema in Italy and its multifaceted, interdisciplinary and complex history. In particular, the book is a valuable research tool for conducting work on the period of the so-called golden age of Italian history, 1908–15." ―Journal of Modern Italian Studies



"From Giorgio Bertellini’s brilliant introduction, which provides a compelling framework for re-evaluating Italian silent cinema, to the final essays, which invite the reader to become an active explorer of this rich cultural heritage, Italian Silent Cinema: A Reader offers a compelling, multi-faceted matrix for all those ready to grapple seriously with a crucial national cinema of the silent era. Most importantly, its many insights into Italian film culture necessarily require a reevaluation of French, American and other European cinemas of the silent era and alter our understandings of the ways early cinema embodied conceptions of modernity." ―Charles Musser, Yale University
