Lo stadio di Wimbledon: per una teoria dell'adattamento

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

[automatically translated] If "The stadium Wimbledon" (1983) by Daniele Del Giudice was born especially as a meditation on the creative vocation, are certainly suggestions on writing to impose it to the attention of the critics. Judge, who has repeatedly stated in his work the cinematic imagination centrality, has certainly never believed the alleged "unsuitability" of his novel: the meeting with the French actor and director Mathieu Amalric, which led to the creation the film "the de Wimbledon" stade (2001), was a favorable opportunity to further reflections on adaptation. But it is written back to the page that is the most important insight, well hidden in the plot of the text in a monologue of the protagonist: when our anticipation of something is contradicted by reality, we immediately marry the new perception, and this perception adjustment - that erases the previous imagination - far from causing dissatisfaction, it determines a "light being." Why not consider our experience as viewers of a film adaptation in the same perspective? An unconventional response such as this can hardly arouse immediate a general consensus, but it can certainly sow doubt and - over time - to produce the Copernican revolution that the debate on adaptation banality has always rejected, by flattering the Ptolemaic centrality of a player He never became fully viewer.
