Structured chronologically, the volume begins by introducing readers to De Sica’s early popularity as an actor and singer during the years of Italian Fascism, and to his initial directorial efforts before the end of World War II. It was not until the postwar era, however, that De Sica made his mark in film history. Special attention is given to this critical phase of his career, which encompasses the neorealist films that made him famous – ‘Shoeshine’, ‘Bicycle Thieves’, ‘Miracle in Milan’, and ‘Umberto D’. When the neorealist movement waned after 1955, De Sica returned to his roots in Neapolitan comedy for a series of films starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni. Works from this period include ‘Two Women’ and ‘Marriage Italian Style’ as well as ‘Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow’, which won De Sica an Academy Award in 1965. In one of his final films, ‘The Garden of the Finzi Continis’, he returned to the subject of World War II and to the human tragedy characteristic of his neorealist productions. This anthology aims to offer a critical survey that covers the entire scope of De Sica’s career, and is a resource for students, critics and film enthusiasts.
