Summary
  • Until the beginning of the eighteenth century, to be 'Italian' meant to identify with a number of collective memories, rather than a national memory. Yet there are elements of continuity that have shaped Italian identity over the past 1,500 years. Religion, food, art and architecture, a literary language, as well as a particular relationship between cities and countryside, between family and civil society have all contributed to present day Italian culture and politics. Baldoli explores the history of Italy as a country, rather than as a nation, in order to trace its fascinating cultural and political development. Offering a way into each period of Italian history, the book brings Italy's past to life with extracts from poetry, novels and music. Drawing on the latest research published in English and Italian, this is the ideal introduction for all those interested in Italy's cultural and social past and its significance for the country's present. -- Book cover
  • "Intertwining the history of art, literature, food, music, and religion, Baldoli explores Italy's history from the Middle Ages to the present. The book offers an insight into continuities across past and present day Italian culture, politics, and identity, drawing on a range of recent historiography and contemporary sources"--Provided by publisher
