Le relazioni familiari nel cinema degli anni cinquanta verso una nuova genitorialità

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper proposes a historical reconstruction of the family education in the Italy of the 1950s. Through the study of the neorealism, “melò” and comedy, emerges the image of a family in transition, divided between the old and the new time. The neorealist films described the crisis of the authoritarian education, the “melò” represented the difficult relationships between man and woman, the comedy interpreted the new relational conflicts lived within the nuclear family (father/mother and parents/children). The cinema interpreted the conflicts of the fifties, putting in the scene the discomfort of Italian families that redefined educational styles and parenting roles.
