Abstract

The judicial field has always engaged fiction, also because of the deep analogies between the trials’ development and the storytelling’s one (return to the past, psychological analysis, longing for a conclusion). This concern  inspires two main typologies: the one which (in the wake of Verri, Beccaria, Manzoni) denounces justice’s actual faults, as corruption, prejudices, personal feelings’ interferences; and the more destabilizing one, which (from Aeschylus to Dostoevskji, Zola, Dreiser, Camus) examines the gap between justice’s need for rules and coherence, and the complexity of experience, the variety of perspectives. Moreover, the courtroom movies often underline, in a dramatic or humorous way, the affinity between legal machine and show business, and the frequent discrepancies between justice and reality.
