  • Premessa: Seminario di Studi Dante e il fumetto

    • Authors: Donato Pirovano
      Abstract: The University of Turin has organized a series of events to celebrate the seventh centenary of Dante's death. The final event included a seminar on Dante and comics, a figurative comment which, despite the different purposes and different audiences, still reminds us that Dante's iconic poetry favors illustrations, in which excellent illuminators have distinguished themselves from the very beginning.

  • Introduzione: Dante e il fumetto

    • Authors: Manuela Roccia, Federico Vercellone
      Abstract: Divina Commedia represents Dante’s most famous work: even if many centuries have passed, it still represents universal knowledge. Today comics are still perceived as consumer literature, however over time there have been many comics works that have reinterpreted in various ways Commedia. Various reinterpretations have been conducted using interwined and different languages. Reinterpretations accompany Dante's world in today's world. The issue entitled Dante and comics contains essays that investigate the links between Commedia and comics through two perspectives: philosophical, linguistic and literary. The authors develop a number of central subjects: comics as a transmedia medium based on drawn from reflections on aesthetics and the artistic improvisation practices; the role that comics can take as a medium to bring students closer to language and literature; the type of language found in the comics and an accurate analysis of the language itself; the results of classroom activities that start from texts taken from Commedia; an in-depth study about various visual Commedia translations that have followed one another over the centuries. From the reflections it emerges versatility and liveliness offered by the transposition of Commedia into comics, allowing the texts to be examined on several levels of interpretation in which the possibilities arising from topics are recognized and broadened. Contributions have a philosophical, linguistic and literary impact.

  • Walt Alighieri. Comix, Commedia, Mixed Media

    • Authors: Alessandro Bertinetto
      Abstract: In this contribution, I discuss the status of comics particularly through the exemplification of Disney’s Dante parodies, in light of some ideas I take in from aestheticological reflection on improvisational art practices. In particular, L’Inferno di Topolino, the first of the great Italian Disney parodies, is paradigmatic for understanding the character of comics as a metafinational hybrid transmedium, capable of appropriating the contents of literary classics, bringing them to life in relation to the contemporary situation.

  • Alla ricerca del canto perduto: tra Dante e Topolino

    • Authors: Manuela Roccia, Giuseppe Noto
      Abstract: This paper is intended to illustrate the possibilities offered by comics in linguistic and literary education. In particular, the subject of analysis concerns a publication by Disney, Zio Paperone e il centounesimo canto, made as a tribute to Dante and the Divina Commedia. The proposal is introduced by a reference to the mystery that surrounds various discoveries of songs of the Divina Commedia supposedly lost; it continues with a description of the comic as a medium in linguistic and literary education; the idea of language varieties and the coexistence of different languages is then presented, linking the proposal to the requirements contained in ministerial school documents. To conclude, an analysis of the language present in the balloons of the comic is carried out, with an examination of the choices made by the authors, also through references in diachrony.

  • Dante e fumetti: Ricadute nella didattica, suggestioni divulgative

    • Authors: Mariano Somà
      Abstract: Dante’s Divina Commedia is one of the most influential literary works in Italy and not only. Reading, understanding and analysing it are a fundamental part of the skills every Italian student should reach, due to the national school programs, particularly in middle and high school. Many Italians and internationals comics’authors worked on Divina Commedia, feeding the collective imagination about Dante, giving new readings of popular suggestions – in this paper, we’ll partially analyse Marcello Toninelli’s and GōNagai’s works, as influences in didactics, but also as peculiar products, with a universal approach, inspired by Dante’s world. So comics can also be considered didactic media. In fact students can be involved in a process where they could build their own comics based on Divina Commedia. Considering both Divina Commedia and comics linguistic media, every student will be able to join a travel from literature to comics and back, creating a final original product, testifying comprehension and personalization of the original literary work.

  • La Commedia tra testo e immagine: breve viaggio nella letteratura dantesca
           a fumetti

    • Authors: Celeste Cassina
      Abstract: Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy is rich in visual and imaginative suggestions, capable of intertwining in total harmony with words and triplets in alternating rhyme, giving life to a unique and fascinating work. Over the centuries, the “divine poem” has inspired generations of authors and artists, who have re-proposed Dante's journey into the afterlife through different languages ​​and expressive codes, first of all representative art. Above all, the visual and artistic translations of Dante’s work have influenced many writers and cartoonists who, starting from lithographs and ancient tables - think of the Divine Comedy illustrated by Gustave Doré in the second half of the nineteenth century - have developed their own transposition of the poem, in the wake of innovation and experimentation. In fact, the tradition of Dante in comics has its roots in the early twentieth century and knows an extraordinary development throughout the century both in Italy and abroad. From Disney’s Mickey’s Inferno to Marcello Toninelli’s Divine Comedy, from Go Nagai’s monumental manga work to Hunt Emerson’s Dante’s Inferno, Dante's triplets capture the attention of comic book fans all over the world, presenting themselves not only as an interesting reading for pleasure, but also as an effective didactic-pedagogical tool for students. In fact, the comic is not only synonymous with entertainment, but also a means capable of adapting the complex content of the Divine Comedy to an audience of primary school pupils, from which it is possible to start a profitable didactic planning, which sees protagonists and “cartoonists” the children themselves.

  • Interpreting Magnolia through Badiou’s Axiomatic Judgment: The
           Visitation of the Idea that Humanity is Love

    • Authors: Lorenzo Gineprini
      Abstract: Alain Badiou’s interpretation of Paul Thomas Anderson’s film Magnolia is a paradigmatic example of his peculiar procedure of cinematic analysis called axiomatic judgment. According to the axiomatic judgment, to read a film is to inquire into the effects it has on thought. This essay reconstructs Badiou’s analysis of Magnolia to show how various cinematic elements—acting style, montage, music, and biblical references—are combined to arrange the visitation of a precise idea: that love is the fundamental precondition for humanity’s existence. Without love, the only experience of the world would be monadic. Examining Badiou’s interpretation of Magnolia does not simply aid our understanding of the film; it also clarifies Badiou’s theories of cinema and love.

  • La metafora considerata nei suoi molteplici usi

    • Authors: Filippo Contesi
      Abstract: Metaphor has often been seen as tightly associated with both aesthetics and cognition, as well as with other aesthetic and cognitive phenomena such as imagination, symbol, allegory, analogy and simile. This article offers a theory of metaphor that accounts for such aesthetic and cognitive associations. The theory is based on a suitably interpreted version of a tool originally developed in an epistemic context, viz. Floridi and Sanders’ method of abstraction.

  • «Esistere così come dipingere». Deleuze con Burri

    • Authors: Gregorio Tenti
      Abstract: The article aims to establish a theoretical dialogue between the work of Alberto Burri, one of the most influential Italian artists of the 20th century, and the late aesthetics of Gilles Deleuze. By drawing on the concept of image outlined by Deleuze in The Exhausted (1992), Burri’s art is conceptualized as the unfolding of a dimension of pure sense that singularizes forms rather than identifying bodies and signs. This ontological “purity” comes from a deep engagement with matter, considered as a plurality of material potencies. In conclusion, the article proposes an original understanding of image as a pre-symbolic zone of ontological collapse.

  • «Auf dem Kopf gehen». Il discorso sulla follia nel Lenz di Georg

    • Authors: Daniela Liguori
      Abstract: The essay aims to analyse Georg Büchner’s novel Lenz as a viable argument on madness that overturns the Cartesian perspective of Metaphysical Meditations. In the itinerary of the mind which leads the thinking subject to the self-understanding as res cogitans –  the “still and immobile” starting point for understanding the idea of God and thus unravellling the doubt about the very existence of the world and of its own corporeity – Descartes excludes madness considering it what is – and must remain – extraneous to thought so that through the exercise of doubt it can reach reliable knowledge that regulates man’s existence in the world and allows him to get out of doubt as to whether the world is a dream that does not exist ‘outside’ the mind. In this way, a human subject is outlined who does not know the suffering, nor does he experience the dramas of real existence, the fragility and vulnerability of finiteness. In the novel Lenz Büchner instead gives voice to a poet torn to the point of madness that suffers from doubt about the existence of God, of the world and of his own self. This leads to a discourse on madness as a pathological verse of human existence, a discourse that relates about the darkest parts of the human soul, that is, those eluding any clinical opposition between reason and madness and that represent, for this reason, an extraordinary trial for our main metaphysical categories.
