G. Marx

I graduated from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (1991), at the same university I obtained a Ph.D. in Applied Linguistics and Communication Languages. After graduating, I worked in different activities in the cultural industry at Rai and Finivest.

I became a researcher at the University of Udine in 2002, associate professor in 2005, full professor in 2018.

I am part of the Doctoral College in Art History, Film Studies, Media Studies, and Music of the Department of Humanities and Cultural Heritage and of the FilmForum Scientific Committee.
I run the DSL/Digital Storytelling Lab and in charge of the Cinemantica laboratory.

I directed the journal "Bianco e Nero" of the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia, Rome (2016–2017); currently on the Board of “L'avventura. International Journal of Italian Film and Media Landscapes "(Il Mulino).

I coordinate the Performing Arts course of study. At DAMS I teach Screenplay, a discipline to which I have dedicated a constant interest over the years, curating a History of the Italian screenplay (Sulla carta. Storia e storie della sceneggiatura in Italia, Lindau, Turin, 2006) designing, creating and directing a master of Screenplay; a Screenplay Archive (CRS); collaborating in the realization of the International Award for Best Screenplay Sergio Amidei.

From 2018 I coordinate the DIUM Cinema, Music and Media Culture research section.

My research interests focus on Italian cinema, screenwriting and media education.
