ITAL 137 SC - Italy as a Murder Mystery


In this course, we will explore in detail all the characteristics of the “giallo” genre and subgenres related to it (such as horror stories and legal narratives), its widespread reception and its inherent multiple textuality, which includes novels, film and comic books. Such texts will open the way to the cultural analysis of the representation of real “gialli”, or violent episodes in Italian history that have been on the spotlight for different reasons and in different ways of investigation and have contributed to the formation of Italian modernity.

Course Credit: 1.0
