This book deals with melodrama - the key cinematic form of post-war Italy. The commercial success and formal perfection of melodrama is central to the re-establishment of the post-war Italian film industry, ensuring cinema's position at the forefront of 20th century mass culture. Melodrama interacts with the well-documented genres of neorealist and art cinema are well documented but it is through melodrama that one can discover most about national culture in Italy at this time, understand film's relationship to popular habits and ideas, and draw the true history of cinema. It connects less established areas of research such as popular neorealism to more well-known subjects such as domestic melodrama. It provides an analysis of cineopera or opera film. It helps to pioneer the area of popular Italian cinema. It contributes to both Italian Studies and Film.

'Finally, an excellent example of a cultural history of film! Louis Bayman very convincingly connects the tears of cinematographic melodrama and its body and lifeblood to the neorealist corpus. He reveals roots, bonds and kinships that have never before been so well illuminated between the great 19th-century tradition of opera, popular literature and theatre and with the contemporary popular cultural forms of the foto- and cineromanzo.' - Gian Piero Brunetta, University of Padova
