Massimo Troisi, l'arte della leggerezza

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Massimo Troisi, the art of lightness

Research output: Book/ReportBook


[Autom. eng. transl.] Through an extreme comedy played on the boundaries of understandable, Troisi stages a real challenge to the film industry, a declaration of non-approval: this is the starting point chosen by the author to probe the creative and communicative processes of the director of "I start again from three". The study starts from the detailed analysis of fourteen scenes through which the articulated world of expressive codes adopted by Troisi in his films is investigated: from Italian to dialect, from silences to pauses, to the mimic-gestural and proxemic code. A sort of laboratory on Troisi's forms, procedures and acting techniques in his comic "making".
