Remembering School Through Movies: The Films of the Book Cuore (1886) in Republican Italy

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter

Abstract

The essay focuses on the case of the four Italian movies/TV serials on Cuore [Heart], hence on how a masterpiece of children’s literature that has long embodied a model of school has been newly presented on the screen, with what changes and with what success with audiences. Two levels are to be considered: the correlation between the movies and the book and between both the movies and the book and society. This analysis will at last return the image of an imaginary school, partially corresponding to the one of Cuore, retaining and altering it in order to propose a model of school, which the audience could recognize both as the traditional good one and as one valid for the present.
