Description

When Umberto Eco set to work on the screenplay of the new television mini-series adaptation of The Name of the Rose, set for release in May 2019, he asked that Old Occitan be incorporated into the show. The director, Giacomo Battiato, has respected the author’s wishes, weaving dialogue and poetry throughout the episodes. This roundtable will consider the role of Old Occitan language and literature, either as a language used or as an inspiration, in this and other series, films, albums, or concert tours by contemporary artists.
