This volume explores how Sardinians and Sardinia have been portrayed in Italian cinema from the beginning of the 20th century until now, starting from the examination of Sardinian tropes in a wide range of texts - travel writing, fictional sources, essays and academic works. The purpose is to shed light on the cultural construction of the Sardinian character and to reveal the ideology that is behind this process. Hence the volume challenges topics such as the dynamics between verbal and visual imagery, and the intertwining between discourse, images and audience. It addresses the following questions: how was the Sardinian character translated from texts into films? Which strategies were developed to define Sardinian images on screen? For whom were these images intended? Which ideology lies behind the images? Focusing on cultural images within film and literature, this volume is of interest to those working in imagology, comparative, cultural and Italian studies.

Review:

this work will certainly be a keystone in the study of Sardinian identity and culture. Bonaria Urban s book is a text with which scholars of these subjects will have to engage, and which will be important also for those studying the representation of the south of Italy in general. Given its structure and length, it can also be used as a sort of catalogue, allowing the reader to jump from section to section and focus mainly on what s/he is interested in. -Luca Peretti, Yale University, in Modern Language Review, vol. 111.3 2016, pp. 880-882"
