*NeMLA Italian Studies — Volume XXXVI (2014)*

*Italy in WWII and the Transition to Democracy: Memory, Fiction, Histories*



Edited by Franco Baldasso (NYU) and Simona Wright (College of New Jersey)





After more than 60 years, the historical and cultural debate about the
crucial years of 1943-1948 in Italy still divides the country and provides
the basis to redefine Italian identity. From the fall of the Fascist regime
after the resounding defeat of Italy in WWII to the ensuing occupation by
the Nazi and the Allies, from the struggle for Liberation to the
proclamation of the Republic, the events occurring in those years represent
the ground of countering political and ideological narratives even today.

Through a multidisciplinary perspective, volume XXXVI of *Nemla Italian
Studies* investigates contrastive representations of this complex scenario.
The issue bestows thought-provoking contributions that approach the
cultural and historical problem of the legacies of Fascism and WWII in
Italy. Among them: the reappraisal of the early postwar philosophical
debate, the examination of the role sculpture had in the memorialization
process, the censorship of the memory of Fascism in foreign movies, the
image of the regime in the Italian *giallo*, and new readings of
unconventional writers such as Alberto Savinio and Curzio Malaparte.



Please contact Simona Wright (simona at tcnj.edu) if interested in a copy for
your library or for reviewing this volume.
