Deconstructing Rome: a lecture by Federica Pedriali at the Casa Italiana

There’s a cool upcoming lecture from Federica Pedriali at NYU’s Casa Italiana that Draperites might be interested in checking out! More info below!

Deconstructing Rome

with Federica Pedriali, University of Edinburgh/Harvard University

Thursday, March 5th, 6:00 p.m.

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, 24 West 12th Street, Auditorium

In her lecture, Professor Federica Pedriali will discuss the idea of Rome in cinema, architecture, and politics. She will focus on two films from 2013: Paolo Sorrentino’s Oscar-winning La grande bellezza and Gianfranco Rosi’s Sacro Gra, a documentary about life along the Grand Raccordo Anulare, the highway encircling the city. Putting these films into dialogue with key theoretical readings by contemporary thinkers and urban planners, she will frame a selective deconstruction of the eternal city, untangling the themes of its intertwined great narratives.
