Il mio viaggio in Italia ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 380 libraries worldwide
My Voyage to Italy is a warm and loving look at the power of movies, ideal for fans of Italian cinema and Martin Scorsese. Scorsese brings an infectious enthusiasm to his recollections of watching neorealist and epic Italian films on television, and to his examination of the masters of Italian neorealism: Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, and Michelangelo Antonioni. While offering a solid postwar timeline, basic information about the intellectual movements that influenced Italian filmmakers, and close readings of key films, the subject of the documentary is less about Italian cinema than Scorsese's passion for Italian cinema, especially the movies that made him fall in love with moviemaking. Viewers seeking a primer on Italian cinema may be disappointed, while those familiar with both Italian cinema and Scorsese's films will find much to enjoy.
