I giorni del futuro sono trascorsi. L'invenzione di Morel di Emidio Greco = Days of future passed. Emidio Greco's L'invenzione di Morel


Days of future passed. Emidio Greco's L'invenzione di Morel. Many Sci-Fi movies of the first half of the Seventies often take place on a planet Earth affected by accelerated phenomena of technological intensification that have a strong impact on the environment and on life forms, determining scenarios that have in common the fear of the future. In Europe, one of the most profound reflections on this social mood remains without doubt L'invenzione di Morel by Emidio Greco (1974), based on a short novel by Adolfo Bioy Casares published in 1940. This paper wants to highlight how the meanings of Emidio Greco's work are supported by a specific use of production design, aimed at the construction of a dramaturgical space based on temporal illusion, nostalgia and fear of the future.
