Il Colosso di Rodi

Fermo immagine tratto dal film Il Colosso di Rodi

Il Colosso di Rodi è il primo film ufficialmente diretto da Sergio Leone. Fu realizzato nel 1960 sulla scia del successo del genere peplum - kolossal, affermatosi con Ben Hur (1959) e storicamente iniziato con Cabiria (1914). Seppure con alcuni anacronismi storici e nei dialoghi, Il Colosso di Rodi può essere considerato coerente con la successiva cinematografia del regista sviluppata nel genere western, laddove i riferimenti storici (non determinanti per la narrazione) sono adattati ai personaggi.


The Colossus of Rhodes is the first movie officially directed by Sergio Leone. It was produced in 1960 in the wake of the success of the peplum and blockbuster categories, established itself with Ben Hur (1959) and historically started with Cabiria (1914). Although with some historical anachronisms and in the dialogues between the actors, The Colossus of Rhodes can be considered consistent with the director's subsequent cinematography developed in the western genre, where the historical references (not decisive for the narration) are adapted to the characters.
