By Silvia Carlorosi

Cinepoiesis, or cinema of poetry, moves us as an odd mix, a word we firstly learn as an oxymoron. Poetry is usually linked to the summary and the evocative, whereas cinema indicates the concrete and the seen. but, quite a few visible media use robust and sometimes contradictory photographs, whose symbolic strength and visible influence stimulate the public’s realization. summary and emblematic pictures encompass us, and the poetic nature of those photos lies within the means they converse past their obvious limits and stimulate connections on a subjective point. A prosaic international just like the modern one, notwithstanding, now not turns out to carry a spot for poetry. we're inundated by means of the necessity to inform and to learn, the necessity to construct our lives via narratives. however it is strictly right here, during this modern panorama, that the cinema of poetry makes an attempt to set up an area for itself, replacing the efficient and commercial gear for the poetic stimulus of a sensory adventure. A Grammar of Cinepoiesis is a theoretical and useful advisor to the cinema of poetry, to its instruments and types. It examines how the language of a “cinema of poetry” works either in its theoretical foundations and in its modes of illustration, and the way it takes form within the exemplary perform of Italian authors corresponding to Pier Paolo Pasolini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Federico Fellini, and the newer Franco Piavoli and Matteo Garrone.
