    Profile Books 2017; US$ 13.31

    Born of tumult in 1909, the Giro d'Italia helped unite a nation. Since then it has reflected it too; the race's capricious and unpredictable nature matching the passions and extremes of Italy itself. A desperately hard race through a beautiful country, the Giro has bred characters and stories that dramatise the shifting culture and society of its... more...

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 137.99

    Die "Achse Berlin-Rom" war mehr als ein politisch-militärisches Projekt, sie erstreckte sich auf alle Bereiche der Gesellschaft. Wissenschaft und Kunst machten keine Ausnahme.

  • The Routledge History of the Renaissanceby William Caferro

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 250.00

    Drawing together the latest research in the field, The Routledge History of the Renaissance treats the Renaissance not as a static concept, but as one of ongoing change within an international framework.

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 94.99

  • Italian Cinemaby Barry Forshaw

    Oldcastle Books 2017; US$ 15.99

    From the unbridled sensuality of silent Italian films, to the neorealist classic Bitter Rice , to the astonishing imagination of Fellini and the more cerebral and fascinating movies of Antonioni, Italy has a filmic legacy unlike that of any other nation. And then there are the popular movies: the lively sword and sandal epics of the peplum era through... more...

  • The Holocaust and Compensated Compliance in Italyby Alexis Herr

    Palgrave Macmillan US 2017; US$ 83.00

    This study of the Fossoli di Carpi camp, from its origins to its postwar functions, exposes not only the pattern of silence that facilitated mass murder, but also the religious, national, and international political sources of that silence. Despite popular belief, Italy's wartime past is far from a single-note narration of benevolence. more...
