Ritratto di un’autrice. Il cinema di Gabriella Rosaleva
[Portrait of a female auteur. The cinema of Gabriella Rosaleva]
This dissertation is an expression of my interest for the role of women in film and media, which I have started to develop when I was working on my MA thesis. As is well known, the work of women is often underestimated in - and sometimes even completely erased from - the history of cinema.
More specifically, I have decided to focus on Gabriella Rosaleva, an Italian filmmaker who has worked in film and television mainly during the 1980s and the 1990s.
After an introductory chapter, I have focused on the reconstruction of Rosaleva’s biography and, subsequently, on the social and cultural context on which she has worked. In the central part of my dissertation I have extensively analysed her films. Starting from the description of the materials I have gathered during my research, I have examined the structural (narrative and stylistic) elements of Rosaleva’s cinema, outlining the recurrent motives and the most original and “personal” traits of her production - which I have further investigated in the conclusive chapter.
Besides her cinematic oeuvre, I have also analysed in-depth a series of different texts, including her novel and a number of subjects, screenplays, and treatments for films that never got made.
The second volume of the thesis presents an ample iconographic appendix and gathers a selection of her cinematic writings, which have been preserved from the decay of time through digitization.
