Nino Manfredi’s: Portrait of a Nude Woman: Fluid Identities Between Carnival and Venice
Lecture by Dr. Elisa Saturno
Nino Mandredi's 1981 comedy/mystery, "Nudo di donna" (Portrait of a Nude Woman) was the third and final film directed by this Italian cinema icon. The story is centered on Manfredi's character whose wife is leaving him and wanders the streets of Rome in despair until he sees a portrait of a woman that resembles his wife. What ensues is a passionate love affair and one roller coaster of a ride that keeps us guessing.
The lecture and screening will take place at Nazareth College's Casa Italiana January 31st at 3:00.
