Meeting with Paolo Mereghetti
The work in cinema

Starting from the pages of his famous dictionary, which celebrated its 30th anniversary with this year’s edition, Paolo Mereghetti will take the audience on a journey across cinema history focused on the theme of labor. From Modern Times to Smetto quando voglio, cinema from every age and country has found work to be a crucial issue for reading society and its problems. The meeting will be an occasion to discover and rediscover some of these films together.

Chiara Borroni and Mariapaola Pierini (University of Turin – Humanities Department, DAMS) will moderate.
