The conference will address the case of Marcello Mastroianni, focusing on his relevance as an actor and as a star. The papers will address the analysis ofMastroianni’s acting style, his position within film, theatre and television history (genres, authors, production and reception practices) and the social and cultural influence of one of modernity’s most relevant icons. A peculiar icon indeed, a star able to embody, at the very same time, a real symbol of Italian identity and a universal character.
