The keynote of this volume, which a group of friends and colleagues are dedicating to Bruna Donatelli, is the question of intermediality, which the various essays collected in it decline in multiple ways. The most diverse types of re-adaptation are discussed (from literature to cinema, from comics to graphic novels, or even from aesthetic essays to film sequences). Ethnographic writing as a form of “remediation” is analysed, the analysis of photo-texts is proposed, and the filmic gaze of pre-cinema writers is scrutinised. We reflect on the intertwining of words and writing, or on art criticism as a form of intermediary writing. Censorship, metaphorical photography and reception processes are discussed. The authors of the various contributions give voice to the most diverse writers and artists: from Lawrence Sterne to Lars von Trier, from Chateaubriand to Orwell, Wagner, Henry James and Manuel Puig. But there are also the photographer George Tatge and the anthropologist Marcel Griaule, there are the directors of the Nouvelle Vague, and then Proust, Yves Bonnefoy, Boris Diop, and last but not least Flaubert, an author much loved and frequented by Bruna Donatelli.
