Resumen:   This study examines how film translation practices in Italy have been subject to state-run film censorship between the years 1923 and 1963. It also investigates the role that the Italian governments held between the mid-1930s and the early 1960s in initiating and reinforcing the Italians' habit of dubbing foreign cinema. Research on the Italia Taglia database and at the archives of the Direzione Generale per il Cinema in Rome shows the extent to which national film censorship has influenced the practice of both silent and sound film translation (i.e. intertitling and dubbing). Archival and historical research also uncovers the economic interests, political pressures and cultural concerns that have privileged the use of dubbing over other types of film translation (e.g. subtitling). The investigation ultimately suggests that the penetration of foreign cinema in Italy was domesticated through the dubbing operation. Dubbing neutralises the audible linguistic otherness of foreign films by re-placing foreign actors' voices with Italian actors' voices. It also favours censorship and target-oriented strategies of translation, privileging domestic standards and values over those conveyed by foreign films. In so doing, dubbing creates a complex cultural impact upon the way Italian audiences are exposed to, and receive, the foreignness of films. [Source: author]
