La periferia romana nel cinema contemporaneo: il luogo (simbolico) di contrasti ed esistenze difficili = Roman suburbia in contemporary cinema: the (symbolic) place of contrasts and difficult existences


Abstract


Roman suburbia in contemporary cinema: the (symbolic) place of contrasts and difficult existences. Roman suburbia became the backdrop for numerous contemporary cinematographic works in which the dramatic lives of people are marked by events and dramas which condition their existence. In this context, the suburbia hasn’t a marginal role, because it is a place that accompanies, breathes and absorbes events and circumstances charging itself with symbols and meanings. In fact, it leaves together with the characters of the movies studied in the paper, contributing to their definition. In particular, these movies are “Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot” (2015), “Il più grande sogno” (2016), “Cuori puri” (2017), “Fortunata” (2017), “Il contagio” (2017), “Manuel” (2017), “La terra dell’abbastanza” (2018), “Dogman” (2018). The main purpose of the paper is to understand why roman suburbia is a “symbolic place”, returned to the top of the cinematographic contemporary works.

Keywords: urban outskirts, suburbs symbolic, outskirts of Rome
