My name is Giuliano Vivaldi. I am a translator, blogger and occasionally write for various publications (mainly on Russian and Soviet cinema). My interests, however, are much broader than that. With this blog I aim to post on subjects not directly related to Russian and Soviet cinema. I have another blog where I concentrate on this subject: as well as blogs on Juan Rodolfo Wilcock, radical perspectives on food cultures etc.

I presently live in the Moscow Region (20 kilometers outside Moscow) but spend periods of time in both the UK (Brighton) and Italy (Riomaggiore). Other cities where I have lived include Trieste, Odessa, Salamanca, Madrid and Barcelona and I have travelled extensively through Crimea. I spent one year in the city of Novokuznetsk and lived two years in the Trentino region of Italy. I aim to publish a full length study on Soviet and post-Soviet film as well as publish translations of Juan Rodolfo Wilcock. I am also working on a script for a Russian film to be co-produced with Austria.

    • well this is a translation of an article which appeared in Russian not from my own research- I haven’t managed to check the sources of the article but the original article was here: There are, I think, books on workers resistance and opposition in the Soviet Union. I’ll try to check up on some titles. I checked some of the names on an internet search- seemed to corroborate some of what was written in the article. It’s certainly a subject matter which has been neglected and deserves more thorough study.
