A quick note, following the conference’s conclusion yesterday afternoon, to thank all of the participants of the conference for helping to stimulate such vibrant and captivating dialogues on the contemporary Italian cinema. My colleague Mariarita & I are very happy with the event, and thankful both for all contributions and the kind words of our colleagues. Special thanks to Filippo Trentin, Gabriella Addivinola, Simone Brioni and Serena Bassi for helping keep the conference running, to Sue Dibben for doing pretty much everything, to Dr.s Jenny Burns and Loredana Polezzi for bringing reassuring words and a calming presence, and to the four panelists, Dr.s Bonsaver, O’Leary, O’Rawe and Vighi for seeing the event through and triggering such an interesting and lively debate.
The next step will hopefully be to form some kind of publication, which we are very excited about, and I’ll post a more detailed review of the event in the near future.
Watch this space!
