El cine italiano es mucho más que el neorrealismo, Vittorio de Sica y Marcello Mastroianni, es parte de la realidad de un país partido en dos, donde el norte y el sur marcan tanto la idiosincrasia política, social, económica y artística.

Esta obra con 32 nuevos artículos muestra la evolución del cine Italiano, con la trayectoria e influencia de los más grandes y también con una visión de hacia dónde puede ir a partir de ahora, que aparece en la serie Blackwell Companions to National Cinemas, toda una garantía de lucided y seriedad.

 

Podemos ofrecer esta novedad con el 15% de descuento hasta el 31 de diciembre de 2017.
