Italian influence in Lovecraft's Work
10 August 2006 | by stanton-mickSee all my reviews

A short (about half hour) film about the alleged finding of a diary of HP Lovecraft giving detailed notes of a trip that he took to Italy. Talking with Italian Lovecraft experts and juxtaposing extracts from the book with footage from the actual region (a rural place called Polesine), the film discusses the likely authenticity of the diary and tries to reconstruct Lovecraft's travels. What is really interesting is how closely the notes in this alleged diary could have served ready material for some of his works like Shadow over Innsmouth. Definitely something to see for the Lovecraft fan. In the eleven days that the six-person crew spent alone in the Polesine region, searching for traces of the writer's passage, something much more remarkable than what we were expecting happened. The question was no longer whether the travel diary belonged to Lovecraft and whether this trip to Italy inspired the stories that rendered him famous. The disturbing question became: what is really happening in that part of the country?
