Authors considered include Luigi Chiarelli, Luigi Pirandello, Anna Bonacci, Eduardo de Filippo, Natalia Ginzburg, Dario Fo and Franca Rame, and Marco Paolini. A close reading of representative plays is accompanied by the discussion of the taped staging of some of them. This course is taught in seminar style, in Italian.
