9780810860735: Historical Dictionary of Italian Cinema (Historical Dictionaries of Literature and the Arts)

The Italian cinema is regarded as one of the great pillars of world cinema. Films like Ladri di biciclette (1948), La dolce vita (1960), and Nuovo cinema Paradiso (1988) attracted unprecedented international acclaim and a reputation, which only continue to grow. Italian cinema has produced such acting legends as Sophia Loren and Roberto Benigni, as well as world-renowned filmmakers like Federico Fellini, Sergio Leone, Mario Bava, Dario Argento, and Lina Wertmüller, the first woman to ever be nominated for the Best Director award.

The Historical Dictionary of Italian Cinema provides a better understanding of the role Italian cinema has played in film history through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, appendixes, black-&-white photos, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on actors, actresses, movies, producers, organizations, awards, film credits, and terminology.

Review:

Scarecrow Press consistently publishes high-quality reference books in its "Historical Dictionary" series, and this volume is an excellent resource for college and public libraries. . . . The author's expertise in Italian culture is reflected in these enjoyable, thoughtful entries. . . .While aimed at an English-speaking market, this work surveys all the important scholarship on the topic in both Italian and English. Highly recommended. (CHOICE, May 2009)

Entries are generally large and detailed, and provide fascinating information on the aspects of Italian film....This dictionary is recommended....A useful resource. (American Reference Books Annual, August 2008)
