ITALIANO  1   AUTUNNO 2014 (duemila quattordici)

LEZIONE 26 NOVEMBRE

QUIZ

ATTENDANCE

SCREENING: MEDITERRANEO

Outline of major themes

ITALY’S NATIONAL IDEOLOGY: ITALIANI BRAVA GENTE

1.      The metaphor of the island in the middle of nowhere and the destruction of the radio.

2.      The first gun shot kills……

3.      Victims of the Italian-style war: a chicken and a donkey.

4.      The vignette on the Password and counter password.

5.      The brothers from the mountains: alone and self sufficient.

6.      The Leutenant: not a professional soldier, drafted: educated Italian class, performs its duty but does not approve the war.

7.      The Sargeant: low-brow middle class, enthusiasticly Fascist, faithful to Mussolini, believes in nationalist propaganda and slogan: “Believe, Obey, Fight.”

8.      Art as metaphor: the Leutenant as an artistic sensibility.

9.      The Leutenant relationship with the Greek Orthodox priest: affinity by intellectual leadership.

10.   The prostitute: social determinism. Anti-war message: make love not war.

One of the subconscious themes of Italian culture, expressed better in film than in literature, is the notion that – when all seems lost – Italians have a way to reconcile with themselves because they are in touch with their own feelings.

In your opinion, what famous film icon (actor and character) represents and personifies American national ideology in the world?
