  • Title: Ideologia, creatività e iconografia nella Chiara di Liliana Cavani [Cavani's representation of Francis and Clare sets them in opposition to medieval hierarchies; she also, contrary to mystical theology, emphasizes Clare's individuality; the film does this, in part by eliminating the miraculous and legendary; Cavani uses Clare to represent the modern world disrupting medieval structures].
