An Italian-Language Excursion into Swiss Cinema - at the Embassy of Switzerland

17TH ITALIAN LANGUAGE WEEK IN THE WORLD

Under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic

Fasten your seat belt and join us on a time-travel trip to discover the path between images and words.

Our time travel will start with some examples, such as Eve by Francis Borghi and Heidi by Luigi Comencini, representing the origin of Swiss cinema in the ’40s and ‘50s. We will then fast forward to the ’60s, a time period during which the Italian language will make its appearance with all its socio-cultural and political significance. It is a time of Italian immigration to Switzerland, which Swiss cinema depicts with films such as Siamo Italiani by Alexander Seiler. We then make another stop in the ’80s. Before our journey ends, we explore cinema in the Swiss-Italian region. 
The presentation will be given by Domenico Lucchini, current director of CISA (International Academy of Audiovisual Sciences). CISA is a training Institute in the fields of cinema, television and multimedia culture, oriented toward student development with the aim of improving their inclinations, talents and skills. 


This presentation, part of the Italian Language Week in the World, is organized in partnership with the Embassy of Switzerland in the United States of America.
