Sciascia on Screen: Between pamphlet and thriller. Two Posthumous Re-readings: Porte aperte and Una storia semplice
This essay treats two adaptations of Leonardo Sciascia’s novels, that, as they appeared soon after the author’s death, stand as a sort of literary memorial to the author: Porte aperte by Gianni Amelio, published in 1990, and Una storia semplice by Emidio Greco, from 1991. The intention is to highlight the original project of transposition from novel to film by means of the structural approach and the analysis of passages that are significant to the screenplay.
