Grazia Deledda and cinema: the autor’s artistic and biographic history shows the otherness of her routes and aims with regard to the new artistic means of communication which instead had fascinated the imagination of other contemporary Italian writers, creating new system of fiction. Thanks to a dense documentary research, we can see how the recent trends in women’s studies refer back to a large number of women’s contributions to every productive area of the Italian cinematographic industry, even if the history of cinema is undoubtedly on the male line. The exchange of letters between Deledda and Eleonora Duse during the period of the writer’s contribution to the script of Cenere and the late discovery of her Scenario sardo per il cinema, are the only signs of her activity in this field. Nevertheless, Deledda, will use in all her writings an expressive, visual way – sort of pictorial art – through her wide use of descriptions, horizontality of space and art of matter. Deledda’s writings display thin and hidden links with the cinematographic expressive and narrative form, the variety of space forms, above all landscapes, subject of this space. Expecially, the relationship between the female characters and the natural habitat. This theme is at the centre of Deledda’s fiction and belongs to a more extensive logic connection figure/background which is the basis of the filmic realization of the story. The way of construing symbolic superimposition of sense associates Deledda’s writing and cinematographic language through exchanges such as here/further on shot reverse shot. The survey into these implications provides the plot of this study.
