The book addresses the Catholic Church’s cinema-related activity, focusing on the Italian case during the period between the 1930s and the 1960s. During these years, the Church played a central role in the political and cultural life of the country and, the cinema being a burgeoning medium at that time, Catholics engaged in a series of interventions aimed at fully and strategically exploiting its potential.
