For decades, scholarship on Federico Fellini has focused on the figure of the director himself, while formal analysis of the craft of filmmaking has been largely overlooked. Fellini spent countless hours in the studios of Cinecitta recording, mixing, and editing voices, sound effects, and music for his films, but his unique and often revolutionary uses of cinematic sound have never before been systematically studied. "Listening to Fellini" reveals the singularly important role played by music in the construction of meaning in Fellini's black-and-white feature-length films, and presents a substantial re-reading of the films made during the most creative period of Fellini's artistic development. Thomas Van Order is an Assistant Professor in Italian at Middlebury College.

Review:

'This is, without question, one of the most important works on Fellini in the last several decades, and unquestionably the most original. It is absolutely fundamental. It will have to be cited and used by anyone who writes about Fellini or teaches him' (Ben Lawton, Chair Film/Video Studies, Purdue Unviersity)
