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.

About the Author:

Gino Moliterno has written extensively in the fields of comparative literature, film studies and Italian studies. He is a lecturer in Italian Film Studies at the Australian National University.

From Booklist:

The newest edition to Routledge's Encyclopedias of Contemporary Culture series is a useful reference for all things Italian in the post-1945 era. The series has already covered Britain (1999), France (1998), Germany [RBB N 15 99], and Spain [RBB N 15 99]. As stated in the introduction, the volume interprets culture in a very broad sense. Thus, the topics covered include politics, religion, recreation, art, education, people, and much more. Entries for things such as Arts festivals, Cycling , and Trade unions are all readily available. Edited by Moliterno, former convener of Italian Studies at the Australian National University, the work offers more than 900 entries from nearly 100 contributors. Entries are arranged alphabetically and range in length from a few short paragraphs to a few pages. Regardless of length, the entries are well written and clear. Although the book focuses on modern topics, historical background is provided whenever needed. Many entries offer references to books and periodicals for further reading, and cross-references to related topics are also provided. Biographical entries, of which there are many, include birth and death dates and places. A thematic entry list can be found at the beginning of the book, a useful tool for those needing to find many entries on a broad topic. General readers will find this work a valuable source for needed definitions, concise but informative descriptions, and biographical material. Specialized researchers will likely appreciate the book's wide-ranging topical coverage and additional references. Recommended for any academic or large public library with users needing expanded reference coverage of Italy.REVWR
