Abstract

The volume is divided into two parts. The first part comprises essays on the figure of the diva (her construction, reception and legacy) in Italian culture from the early modern period, through the nineteenth century, and up to the First World War. The second part brings the focus on the diva in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The interdisciplinary approach of the volume and the richness of its contributions offer new and engaging perspectives on the figure of the diva in Italy. This work will be of interest to Italianists, historians, women's studies specialists, and cultural studies specialists. It will also be an excellent text to be included on the reading lists of undergraduate or postgraduate courses in Italian studies and has great potential to stimulate further research.
