Rationalism on Set: Glamour and Modernity in 1930s Italian Cinema

By Valeria Carullo

This catalogue was published to accompany the exhibition Rationalism on Set: Glamour and Modernity in 1930s Italian Cinema, curated by Valeria Carullo, held at the Estorick Collection in 2018.

This exhibition explores a little-known period of Italian cinematic history, highlighting the strong Modernist influence apparent in the set designs created for a number of romantic comedies during the inter-war years. A selection of vintage photographs is complemented by sketches and contemporary periodicals sourced from the Cineteca Nazionale, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (Rome), the Cineteca di Bologna, the Museo Nazionale del Cinema (Turin) and the RIBA Collections.

The catalogue includes a selection of works featured in the exhibition, as well as an essay by Valeria Carullo, Exhibition Curator and RIBA Photographs Curator.
