The Italian Cultural Institute of Dublin invites on 30 June to an online meeting dedicated to the memory of Monica Vitti, with the participation of Paolo Saporito, IRC Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Film and Screen Media at University College Cork.

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.
