By Department of Romance Languages and Literatures on February 2, 2017

In a newly published essay (“A Journey from Death to Life: Spectacular Realism and the “Unamendability” of Reality in Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty), Assistant Professor of Italian Monica Facchini investigates the relationship between the spectacle of contemporary society and the “unamendability” of reality (Ferraris) in Sorrentino’s Academy-Award winning film (2013). The essay has appeared in From Neorealismo to Nuovo realismo: Encounters with the Real in Contemporary Italian Literature and Cinema, ed. Loredana Di Martino and Pasquale Verdicchio (Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2017).
