Abstract

Recent work on the cultural history of modern Italy has radically challenged received opinion about the relationship of state and culture during the twentieth century. In this rich interdisciplinary book the complex interactions and negotiations of control are elucidated by way of: case studies of major authors, filmmakers and artists and their encounters with censorship, patronage and other forms of direct state intervention from Mussolini to Berlusconi; analytical surveys of different periods, media and culture industries; and new research into Fascist censorship, the Resistance and its imprint in the collective memory, the introduction of television in the 1950s and the terrorism of the 1970s.
