“Rapsodia Satanica” is a masterpiece of silent Italian cinema. Based on a 1915 poem by Fausto Maria Martini, it was conceived as an “opera d’arte totale,” an amalgam of all the arts of the time, including the avant-garde fashion designs of Mariano Fortuny. The film’s sensuous and phantasmic qualities recall the serpentine dancer Loie Fuller of the turn of the 20th century, as well as the craze for exotic dances that swept European and American stage and screen around this time. Introduction by Eugenia Paulicelli.
