Immaginario dantesco e danze infernali

A frame from “The Infernal Cave” / “L’Antre infernal” (Gaston Velle, 1905)

“Immaginario dantesco e danze infernali. La rappresentazione della Divina Commedia attraverso la danza e il gesto coreografico nel cinema muto“ (Italian language), La Valle dell’Eden – Quaderni, No. 1 (2023).

“Dance spreads knowledge as far as it conveys a different culture, either in terms of geographical origins or in terms of social level. It is in the light of this complex network of meanings that the phenomenology of infernal dances in silent cinema must be considered, in a transnational perspective, from Italy to France, to imperial Russia and the United States and vice versa”.
