Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The Italian cinema from the post-war period today has elaborated the experience of the Holocaust through the most disparate representations. This short essay is a first attempt to reconstruct the ways in which critical literature has studied the presence of the Shoah in the Italian cinematic imagination. The research deliberately excluded reviews of films, articles from academic journals, monographs on individual directors, university manuals, critical dictionaries and encyclopedias, general studies of film criticism and history of memory. Among the consulted bibliography, the twenty titles were chosen in which the references to the theme were quantitatively more present and qualitatively more important. Priority was given to studies in Italian and English, without ignoring particularly interesting French and German titles. This bibliographic survey, which will follow a chronological narration, obviously does not claim to be exhaustive. The goal is, therefore, solely to provide a possible research tool on the subject.
