Summary
In 2005 Michele Placido's Romanzo criminale showcased to an international audience a generation of stars (Riccardo Scamarcio, Kim Rossi Stuart, Pierfrancesco Favino, Elio Germano, Stefano Accorsi and Claudio Santamaria). The film foregrounded many of the features of current Italian cinema production: its emphasis on homosocial bonding, particularly its turning towards the contested period of 1970s terrorism, and its use of charismatic male performers working together repeatedly. Stars and Masculinities in Contemporary Italian Cinema is the first book to explore contemporary male stars and cinematic constructions of masculinity in Italy, uniting star analysis with detailed consideration of the masculinities that are dominating current Italian cinematic output. Focusing on star bodies and performance styles, this book argues, however, that we can read a palpable anxiety regarding contemporary Italian masculinity, which is seen as constantly vulnerable. --Provided by publisher
