Abstract: 
The
aim
of
this
research
is
to
retrace
the
Italian’s
imaginary
in
the
cultural
transition
that
took
place
in
the
post-­‐war
period,
when
from
a
rural
nation
Italy
became
a
modern
mass
society:
to
examine
this
evolution
from
the
miserable
conditions
of
the
post-­‐war
period
to
the
economic
boom
years,
the
analysis
will
focus
on
the
change
that
has
most
influenced
the
daily
life
of
Italians

the
evolution
of
consumption
and
change
of
habits

through
the
film
lense
of
coeve
popular
films
production.
During
the
period
considered,
the
movie
comedy
has
recorded
the
changes
that
occurred
in
the
Italian
society,
often
redefining
the
collective
imaginary
in
terms
of
needs
and
desires.
The
discussion
is
divided
into
two
parts.
The
first
part
outlines
the
contours
of
the
historical
context:
the
first
chapter
offers
an
overview
on
the
evolution
of
post-­‐war
consumption
and
defines
the
research
perspective,
reviewing
the
stages
that
characterized
the
post-­‐war
period
in
a
periodization
related
to
a
reading
of
consumption

which
reflects
the
subdivision
of
the
proposed
analysis
in
“needs”
and
“desires”.
The
second
chapter
describes
the
conditions
of
Italian
cinema
after
the
Second
World
War,
both
to
understand
the
reasons
that
make
it
a
crucial
point
to
observe
the
change
of
Italian
society,
and
to
outline
the
reciprocity
between
the
history
of
cinema
and
the
history
of
Italian
society
in
that
moment.
Thanks
to
these
particolar
conditions,
it
is
then
possible
to
proceed
with
the
second
part,
analysing
the
movies
in
relation
to
the
objectives
of
the
research:
the
third
and
fourth
chapter
are
focused
respectively
to
the
Needs
of
Reconstruction
and
to
the
Desires
of
the
"Italian
Miracle".
