Workshop: "Linguistica italiana: a lezione da Primo Levi" / "Italian Linguistics, Taking Lessons from Primo Levi" - Prof. Fabrizio Franceschini (Pisa)

-

Location: 341 O'Shaughnessy

Primo Levi was a chemist, a witness to the Holocaust, a great writer… but also a linguist. Anna Laura and Giulio Lepschy, George Jochnowitz and other scholars have written important pages on this subject. Levi can teach us several lessons about Italian linguistics. As an essayist and brilliant writer, he gives us one such lesson when, with his “‘casual’ libertinage” in L’altrui mestiere

Lecture: "Primo Levi e Dante: quattro casi (più o meno noti)" / "Primo Levi & Dante: Four Cases (More or Less Known)"- Prof. Fabrizio Franceschini (Pisa)

-

Location: Special Collections

Dante’s Divina Commedia is one of the most, if not the most quoted book in the works of Primo Levi. In many books or chapters, often across several pages in a row, we find either explicit references or allusions to Dante. Since a systematic approach is impossible, a symptomatic approach will be proposed in this lecture. Professor Franceschini will consider:…

Research Seminar: "Fascist Im/Mobilities: A Decade of Amedeo Nazzari” - Prof. Alberto Zambenedetti (Toronto)

-

Location: Special Collections

This research seminar is anchored to the broad-shouldered frame of Amedeo Nazzari (1907-1979), one of the first true leading men to materialize in the Italian film industry. As Giuseppe Gubitosi noted, examining this figure means interrogating Italian identity at large, as the tall, elegant, dark-haired and moustachioed Sardinian was “a product of the history of Italian cinema, of its constant efforts to signify and represent the Italian nation” (1998:15). In fact, over the course of his long career, the prolific actor created an on-screen character who was heroic but human, exceptional yet flawed, sensitive to the seductions of material wealth but ultimately following the straight and narrow path to moral and spiritual fortitude: as Masolino d’Amico argued, “Nazzari was clamorously, ostentatiously but also calmly, a positive character,” with whom Italians continued to identify for decades (in Colasanti and Nicosia 2007:11). This research seminar will examine a selection of films from 1938 to 1943 featuring Nazzari in a leading or supporting role in relation to human im/mobility (physical, social, and mediated), revealing how the roots of Nazzari’s on-screen persona are firmly planted in his Fascist-era work, and how his early career choices reverberated throughout his distinguished filmography.…
