Sinossi | Abstract
This thesis aims to shed light on the cultural and aesthetic implications of the relationship between Italy and India on and off the screens of Italy, following the expansion of Bollywood in Europe during the 90s. Bollywood’s propagation abroad affected the identity of the South Asian diaspora, urban spaces and aesthetics which generated what Le Guellec – describing the arrival of Indians and Bollywood cinema to Paris – named as Bollywood/India mania. This work will attempt to individuate the existence of representational patterns based on the aesthetic of melancholy with its nuances and metamorphoses, which represents, narrates and constructs South Asian and/or fused identities socially and culturally on the screens of Italy.
