This rigorously compiled A-Z volume offers rich, readable coverage of the diverse forms of post-1945 Italian culture. With over 900 entries by international contributors, this volume is genuinely interdisciplinary in character, treating traditional political, economic, and legal concerns, with a particular emphasis on neglected areas of popular culture. Entries range from short definitions, histories or biographies to longer overviews covering themes, movements, institutions and personalities, from advertising to fascism, and Pirelli to Zeffirelli.
The Encyclopedia aims to inform and inspire both teachers and students in the following fields:
*Italian language and literature
*Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences
*European Studies
*Media and Cultural Studies
*Business and Management
*Art and Design
It is extensively cross-referenced, has a thematic contents list and suggestions for further reading.
