Mapping Cinema Memories: Emotional Geographies of Cinema-going in Rome in the1950s

Abstract

This article, based on the AHRC-funded project (2013-16), ‘In Search of Italian Cinema Audiences in the 1940s and 1950s: Gender, Genre and National Identity’, explores the power of geo-visualization for capturing the affective geographies of cinema audiences. This mapping technique, used in our project both to interrogate the Italian exhibition sector as well as to map film distribution, is used in this article to illustrate the affective and emotional dimensions of cartographic practices related to memory. The article will firstly examine the imbrication of memory and space, before moving on to a discussion of our mapping of the memories of one of our respondents, and the questions this mapping raises about geographical and remembered space, mobility, and the relation between mapping and life-cycles.
