Women, Desire, and Power in Italian Cinema offers, for the first time in Italian Cinema criticism, a contextual study of the representation of women in twentieth-century Italian films. Marga Cottino-Jones argues that the ways women are depicted on screen reflects a subconscious “sexual conservatism” typical of an Italian society rooted within a patriarchal ideology. The book then follows the slow but constant process of social awareness in the Italian society through women in film, especially after the 1950s. Comprehensive in scope, this book analyzes the films of internationally known male and female directors, such as Antonioni, Fellini, Rossellini, Visconti, Bertolucci, Benigni, Cavani, Wertmuller, Comencini, and Archibugi. Special consideration is given to the actresses and actors that have become the icons of Italian femininity and masculinity, such as Sofia Loren, Gina Lollobrigida, Silvana Mangano, Gian Carlo Giannini, Marcello Mastroianni, and Alberto Sordi.

About the Author:

Marga Cottino-Jones is Professor Emerita, UCLA and the author of multiple books, including Order From Chaos: Social And Aesthetic Harmonies in Boccaccio's Decameron and A New Guide to Italian Cinema, with Carlo Celli.

Review:

"[Women, Desire, and Power in Italian Cinema] is wise and refreshingly readable scholarship that should become a standard reference work for both scholars and students of Italian cinema and culture." - Italian Quarterly

"Cottino-Jones is to be applauded for her huge undertaking: an examination of a hundred years of Italian cinema through the lens of the representation of women. This is an important and necessary study that brings into relief, among other topics, the issue of stardom in order to tackle the issue of female representation." - Giorgio Bertellini, author of Italy in Early American Cinema and editor of The Cinema of Italy
"Cottino-Jones's long awaited Women, Desire, and Power in Italian Cinema is a clear, compelling, and innovative study which offers an exciting paradigm for examining women's issues in Italian cinema from the silent and early sound period to the present." - Carlo Celli, Professor, Department of Romance and Classical Studies, Bowling Green State University
