Italian Noir: ‘Gomorra’ and ‘1992’

Conversation with screenwriters Ludovica Rampoldi (‘1992’ and ‘1993’) and Leonardo Fasoli and Maddalena Ravagli (‘Gomorra’ and ‘CeroCeroCero’). Friday the 21st of April at 20:30 at the CCCB Hall.

Nordic noir captures a lot of attention nowadays, but the south of Europe has been, for quite a while now, reviving with spirit a tradition of crime and corruption. Italian noir has gathered strenght onscreen after the ustoppable journalist Roberto Saviano has broken the taboo of mafia, leading the way to a more realist and incisive approach to the guts of power.

Leonardo Fasoli and Maddalena Ravagli have approached the subject of crime with the screenplays of the iconic series ‘Gomorra’, key piece because of its reinvention of the genre, and are now preparing for the release in May of ‘Il Commissario Maltese’, a look into the past of police dramas. Ludovica Rampoldi was also part of ‘Gomorra’’s screenwriting team, and is also the creator of ‘1992’, a political thriller filled with dark characters and plotting in the shadows. She is now working on releasing its follow-up, ‘1993’.

The three of them will discuss this tendency in italian fiction and show previews of their upcoming projects in a talk moderated by Iván Pintor, university professor in various countries and passionate investigator of television.
