Masterclass – The mafia’s portrayal in film. Donato Santeramo, 22 mars 2024, Université Côte d’Azur

L’Observatoire du Récit Criminel accueille le Professeur Donato Santeramo à Cannes, Campus Georges Méliès, le 22 mars à 14h.

Organisation: Manuela Bertone et Serge Milan (LIRCES).

Présentation :

The theme of Professor Santeramo’s talk revolves around mafia culture and the power of myths, rituals, and symbols. An analysis will be conducted on the utilization of symbols, initiation rituals, and myths by both mafia organizations and mafia-like entities, exploring their impact on how the perception of these criminal organizations is molded by these precepts. Focusing on the cultural aspects of criminal organizations transforms them from mere criminal gangs into criminal societies with their own laws governed by specific statutes. The talk also aims to position the phenomenon within a socio-cultural-economic context, providing a holistic perspective on the global issue of the mafia phenomenon. This approach is often underscored by the representation of mafia and mafia-like criminal organizations in cinematic productions.
