Giannalberto Bendazzi (born 1946) is an animation historian,[2] author, and professor.[3][4]

Biography[edit]

Born in Ravenna, Italy, raised in Milan, and currently living in Genoa, Bendazzi started his career as a journalist and at the same time a self-funded scholar. He turned to full-time academic teaching by 2002. Bendazzi has lectured on several continents, and particularly in Italy. In 2002 he first received the Award for Outstanding Achievement in Animation Theory from the Animafest Zagreb.[5] In 2016 Asifa (Association internationale du Film d'animation) granted him the Life Achievement Award.

Works[edit]

Bendazzi has authored or edited many books and articles.[6][7] He is best known for his book "Cartoons − 100 Years of Cinema Animation"[8][9] (Bloomington, Indiana: Indiana University Press, 1994), a history of the medium, published in Italian, English, French, Spanish and Persian. This book has been considered the definitive work on the subject for animation students and scholars.[1][10][11] But in 2016, the three-tome "Animation - A World History" was published by CRC Press (Italian version "Animazione - una storia globale", Milan, Utet, 2017). Bendazzi also edited "Alexeieff – Itinéraire d’un maître / Itinerary of a Master"[12][13] (Paris: Dreamland, 2001 in English and French, about the well-known author of avant-garde short films), and "Quirino Cristiani, pionero del cine de animación" (Buenos Aires: Ediciones de la Flor, 2008, in Spanish, about the author of the first animated feature-length films (English version "Twice the First - Quirino Cristiani and the Animated Feature Film", CRC Press).

Bendazzi also wrote books on live-action cinema, on Woody Allen and Mel Brooks.
