Napoli! The System, the Camorra and the Pizza: Breaking the Stereotypes is a series of film screenings and panel discussions organized by Alessandro Ago of the USC School of Cinematic Arts. The events explore the dynamic and contradictory visions of Naples, known for its pizza, organized crime, and cultural sophistication. The series uses Roberto Saviano’s true-crime novel Gomorrah—and the film adaptation by Matteo Garrone—as a point of departure for thinking about the cinematic representations of Neapolitan crime, culture, and cuisine.
In cooperation with Ago, Ross Scimeca of the USC Libraries has selected the following resources to help you explore the history and meaning of Naples in the Italian imagination.
