Fascism and Resistance in Italian Cinema

Fascism and Resistance in Italian Cinema (Troubador Publishing Ltd, 2020)

Italian cinema is one of this country’s postwar success stories; the memory of Fascism one of its ongoing challenges. In this book, Dominic Gavin, looks at these two stories together, looking at the treatment of Benito Mussolini’s dictatorship in a series of works by Italian filmmakers. The work of Italian directors has much to tell us about the ways in which the memory of the Italian dictatorship was processed by postwar society.
