Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The screenplay of Corpo d'amore (1972), the first film shot by Fabio Carpi, was born from the partnership with Luigi Malerba and was influenced by the interventions of the Emilian author: his ability to invent his language unfolds through a verbal texture that leaves few frames without dialogue. A common feature in Malerba's narrative and in Carpi's film is in fact the lack of communication, according to a Beckettian model, which generates a paradoxical inversion of functions: the frames, which could narrate in an iconic way, are the hostage of the dialogues, while the words assigned to conversation resolves into silence.
