Abstract

The famous definition of the “seventh art”– as the fusion of the six fundamental arts of music, architecture, poetry, dance, painting and sculpture – identifies cinematography as a form of total representation. Pursuing this concept, we thus arrive at the analysis of the inevitable relationship between this plastic art par excellence and the spaces in which it takes place. In addition to the reliance on studio settings, the landscape has always been used as a scenic background. However, very often the buildings, streets, gardens and various kinds of architecture becomes true protagonists in the films. In Italian neorealism, for example, the raw representation of cities destroyed by war actually prevails over the plot.
