Shaping Italian society - with Niamh Cullen, John Foot and Patrick McGauley

This event marks the publication of two new books exploring Italy’s recent history from different angles. Patrick McGauley’s Matera, 1945-1960: The History of a ‘National Disgrace’ is a case study of Italy’s ‘southern question’ and ideas of national shame, while Love, Honour and Jealousy: The Intimate history of the Italian Economic Miracle by Niamh Cullen (Queen’s University, Belfast) explores the impact of the post-war ‘economic miracle’ on the emotional lives of Italian families. Renowned historian of modern Italy Professor John Foot will introduce and discuss the books with their authors.

Event in English.

Free admission, booking recommended.
