“Monica Vitti: Performing change across Italy's modernization and popular culture”. Online conversation with Paolo Saporito - UCC

Monica Vitti was among the greatest Italian actresses in cinema history who achieved international acclaim especially through her performances in Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1960s films.

Since that decade and those films, her voice and peculiar physiognomy have been traditionally associated with the representation of alienation and the existential troubles the Italian bourgeoisie experienced with the advent of modernity and capitalist economic development. Vitti’s life and work, however, reveal a much more multifaceted and significant figure that should not be reduced to her performances in Antonioni’s films.

At just five months after her death we’ll pay a tribute to Monica Vitti with Paolo Saporito, IRC Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Film and Screen Media - University College Cork.
