Example text

Between 1929 and 1934 and after 1939, Italian regional dialects were featured and even encouraged in films. It was between 1934 and 1939 when Luigi Freddi was head of film THE FASCIST YEARS 25 directives that dialects were discouraged. 12 American narrative had already suggested a realist model such as that of Verga and his verismo style. 13 To counter the appeal of foreign influences, the regime encouraged a culture that sought to equate italianità (Italianess) with romanità (Romaness) and ancient Rome’s aura of historical and military prestige.

33 Like his colleagues, Camerini could also never be sure he would not run afoul of the regime’s censors. In Camerini’s Il cappello a tre punte/The Three Cornered Hat (1935) starring Neapolitan actors and writers Eduardo and Peppino De Filippo set in the Naples of the 1600s, an arrogant governor decides to coerce favors from a peasant girl by imprisoning her husband. The husband assumes the identity of the governor and the natural imbalance caused by the governor’s abuse of power is overturned for a happy ending.

However intellectuals including Luigi Chiarini, Umberto Barbaro, and Francesco Pasinetti were able to continue their discussions of film theory in journals like Bianco e nero. Film directors who did not wish to blatantly praise the regime could make films that were politically “neutral” or that had elements that indirectly appealed to the regime’s political agenda such as Pietro Micca (1938), a film directed by Aldo Vergano and written by Sergio Amidei about the Piedmontese defense against a French invasion in the early 1700s in which a humble miner blows himself up in order to deliver Turin.
