«Un passato che non passa»: La prima linea e il ritorno agli anni Settanta

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review

Abstract

This article examines the film La prima linea (De Maria, 2009) in relation to its revisiting, through the use of archive footage, of key moments of the anni di piombo. It examines the use of the archive footage as part of a strategy by the filmmakers to obviate some of the controversy that surrounded the film’s production, and places the film in the context of contemporary Italian cinema’s obsession with the return to the 1970s. Finally, it considers the consequences of this return to the archive for thinking about historical memory and about modes of representing the past.
