Abstract

The essay situates "Le infedeli" (Monicelli e Steno, 1952) within the broad area of Italian post-war melodramas. By analyzing its most relevant textual features the film is proposed as an emblematic case of the "highbrow" side of the genre (the same as Cottafavi's "Traviata '53" or Antonioni's "Le amiche"), whose importance has usually been neglected in comparison to the more renowned popular dramas.
