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.

University.
