The article refers to the meeting on "Materiali di antropologia visiva I" held in Rome from 18 to 22 November 1985 at the Museo Nazionale delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari, in collaboration with the Associazione Italiana di Cinematografia Scientifica, AICS. The five-day programme was organized in order to deal with subjects of specific interest and also presented many videotapes and films produced by various Italian institutions and individual researchers. The relationship between visual anthropology and scientific films was emphasized. Theoretical problems were discussed, such as the role of video and film recording compared with oral and written sources. Technical aspects were also covered, including film editing and the choice of equipment to be used in field work. Two examples of modern techniques experimentally applied to visual anthropology were presented: computer vision and videodisc. The aims of the meeting were to show the present status of audiovisual anthropological research in Italy and to establish this first meeting as a reference point for future activities in this field.
