La Poesia nel Cinema Italiana (Poetry in Italian Film)

Sunday, June 13 @ 10:00 am PST– From the enchantment of love to the thirst for infinity, join Valerio Viale in this fascinating one-hour FREE virtual workshop in which he explores the subject of poetry using the visual impact of cinema through discussion on the similarities and differences between Il Postino (1994) and Leopardi (2014). In these two Italian movies the poets and their characters come alive and give us the key to understand and appreciate their words and works. With the aid of a few movie clips, the workshop delves into Pablo Neruda’s passionate love poetry and Giacomo Leopardi’s introspective, philosophical poetics.
