Meyer, Karen Ann; Vellani, Al-Munir – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2014
In "Cinema Paradiso" (Tomatore, 1988), Salvatore's love of movies came from spending his earlier, young life inside a cinema with the fatherly projectionist Alfredo, now blind and bitter.

Kyburz, Bonnie – Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, 2010
