MAURIZIO GRANDE - The Film as Icon

The purpose of this work is to define the film icon from a semiotic point of view, that is, from the point of view of a general theory of signs or texts. In this perspective it is of great interest to define the iconic processes at the basis of the building up of images, as well as to define the semiotic characteristics of the icon, that is, to define those characteristics that make the image an icon sign.

The object of this investigation will thus be the basic character of the film icon, that is in other words what defines it as a substitute for reality with a high degree of similarity to it.
