Views from the Grand Tour: On Cinema and Architecture

Over the centuries, grand tourists have produced numerous literary  
and artistic works that disseminated knowledge and captured the  
imagination of Italy. How has cinema, an art form that emerged during  
the fin-de-siècle and is uniquely adept at capturing architectural  
and town planning configurations, depicted the Grand Tour cities?  
Following the lead of Bruno (1993), Bertozzi (2001), Cresti (2003)  
and others, we invite panelists to consider the nexus between Italian  
cinema and architecture, be it formal, structural, aesthetic,  
ideological, socio-historical, cultural, functional, or gender  
related. Interdisciplinary and comparative studies are particularly  
welcome. Organizers: Alberto Zambenedetti ([log in to unmask]) and Gaoheng  
Zhang ([log in to unmask]), Department of Italian Studies, New York  
University. Proposals due to the organizers on January 2, 2009.  
Please include title, brief abstract (150-200 words) and audio-visual
