edited by

Marco Presotto    Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna, Italia    



This book aims to deepen the relationship between classical Spanish theater and cinema through the analysis of a corpus which has been only partially studied and recently rescued by critics. The chapters first deal with theoretical questions about the cinematographic adaptation of a dramatic text, followed by specific studies of significant periods in the political and cultural history of Spain in the 20th century, such as the artistic production of exile and that of the Franco regime, also taking into account the creative contribution of the most recent films based on the theme and their impact on contemporary society.
