Since its inception in the mid-1950s, the television drama has emerged as the dominant medium of contemporary storytelling in Italian society, with a steadily increasing supply of locally produced domestic dramas offering up competing versions of Italian identity. Informed by the nation’s rich historical and cultural heritage—as well as a string of notable foreign imports—the narratives discussed here offer much insight into Italian society and highlight the wide array of television programming available outside of Britain and the United States.

About the Author:

Milly Buonanno is professor benemerita at La Sapienza University of Roma and director of the Observatory of Italian TV Drama.  

Review:

“Some say that the age of television is over. If that is so, then the medium has found its ideal historian and critic in Milly Buonanno.”

(Television and New Media)

“In this wonderful book, Milly Buonanno has achieved the difficult mandate that a study of the medium must also be a study of a whole way of life. Italian TV Drama and Beyond shows that television is just as tied up in Italy’s long legacy of style and creativity as its cuisine, fashion, and landscape.”

(John Durham Peters, University of Iowa)

“In this scintillating and original study of Italian television drama, Milly Buonanno develops a brilliant and compelling account of a relatively unknown body of televisual texts that will be required reading for scholars and students of television and the mass media everywhere.”

(Stephen Grundle, University of Warwick)

“Milly Buonanno has long been concerned with the development of European storytelling on the small screen. Here, she brings considerable scholarship, sophistication, and sympathy to a highly compelling and warmly recommended study of national and non-national fiction in Italy since the 1950s.”

(Albert Moran, Griffith University, author of TV Format Mogul)
