Italian Fascism: History, Memory and Representation
R.J.B. Bosworth, Patrizia Dogliani
Springer, Jul 27, 2016 - History - 245 pages
Bringing together scholars from the Italian and English-speaking worlds, Bosworth and Dogliani's edited book reviews the history of the memory and representation of Fascism after 1945. Ranging in their study from patriotic monuments to sado-masochistic films, the essays here collected ask how and why and when Mussolini's dictatorship mattered after the event, and so provide a fascinating study of the relationship between a traumatic past and the changing present and future.
