"A film that will let you see the music and listen to drawings; in a word, a film full of Fantasia!" Bruno Bozzetto's Allegro non Troppo tips its hand right away: it is an unabashed, yet full of admiration, retake on Walt Disney's 1940 "concert feature". The obvious nod to that model fuels many tongue-in-cheek jokes in the film; however, Allegro non Troppo soon departs from mere parody, and becomes a showcase for the multifaceted aesthetics of Italian animation in 1976, as well as a witty social satire and a powerful rethinking of the music-image relationship in cinema.Marco Bellano's open access book reconstructs the history of the production of Allegro non Troppo, on the basis of an original research developed with the contribution of Bozzetto himself; it also presents an audiovisual analysis of the work, as to reassess the international relevance of Bozzetto's achievements by giving insight into the director's creative process.The eBook editions of this book are available open access under a CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 licence on

Marco Bellano presents a comprehensive study of Bruno Bozetto's Allegro non Troppo, the infamous satire of Disney's Fantasia and perhaps the most famous of Italian feature animation. Bellano's expertise in music and the director's own insights combine to provide a complete understanding of the film. Highly recommended!
In what was clearly a labour of love for the author, Marco Bellano has created a stupendous account of the history, development and production of Bruno Bozzetto's masterpiece Allegro non Troppo. Combining his expertise in animation and music, he excels with in-depth-research and meticulous audio-visual analysis. A must-read for any animation enthusiast and a highly significant contribution to Italian animation history.
Marco has produced a scholarly work accessible to a wide audience, from academics to artists and music lovers. His unique multidisciplinary background has given life to an inspiring text where the voice of the self-proclaimed 'eternal amateur' Bruno Bozzetto can be heard throughout. The book also offers a terrific short history of animation production in Italy from its conception to the '70s of Allegro non Troppo. In just a few pages Marco manages to capture the joys and tribulations of the artists and artisans who adopted animation as a creative language that allowed them to extend their artistic search beyond the canvas. A remarkable accomplishment!
