Commedia all'italiana, or Comedy, Italian style, became popular at a time of great social change, thus it is particularly attentive to the changing spaces of everyday life and the changing social roles performed within those spaces. This book, using over 150 comedies produced in Italy from 1958 to 1970, examines Comedy, Italian style's representation of gender in the everyday spaces of beaches and nightclubs, offices, cars, and kitchens, through the exploration of key spatial motifs. Fullwood sets out a model for cinema's construction of gendered models of space and spatial models of gender, which she uses to look at a genre that was intimately bound up with processes of social change.
