Les élites culturelles et la diffusion du cinéma italien en France, 1945-1970

Abstract : From 1945 to the seventies, the main contributors of the Italian cinema reached a very high level of creativity. Succeeding to the 1940-1950 neorealist movie renewal period, the two decades 1950-1970 were also dominated by major movie directors and some distinct artistic trends. Being introduced and analyzed in France by the intellectuals – these ones acting as cultural mediators – the Italian movie production aroused the enthusiasm of the cultural elite. While the neorealist trend was promoted by some exegetes identifying themselves to the political engaged Italian elite, the years from 1960 to 1970 let merge and grow the involvement of professional cultural mediators actually working for the broadcasting of the Italian movies in France. Using the mass media, these last ones allow the Italian movies to meet a larger in France during this period.
