“Drama Queens: When Melodrama Meets Film,” Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò, New York University, March 8-15, 2024

Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò and the Department of Italian Studies at NYU invite you to a festival of rare and restored films from the Cineteca of Bologna featuring Francesca Bertini and Lyda Borelli. If you still think that early cinema was silent and in black and white, think again and join us in the discovery of these masterpieces. You’ll realize that some of the films were tinted frame by frame, others came with original scores by some of the great composers such as Mascagni and Pizzetti.

Films include: L’ultima Diva: Francesca Bertini (1982), Rapsodia Satanica (1917), Ma l’amor mio non muore! (1913), and Sangue Bleu (1914).
