Italian Sexualities Uncovered, 1789–1914 breaks new ground in the history of nineteenth-century Italy. It brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars to explore nineteenth-century Italian sexualities from a variety of viewpoints, illuminating the relationships between the personal and political; the presence of male, female and same-sex desires that defied norms of respectability and acceptable gender roles; the sexual behaviour of different classes and subcultures; and transnational sexual encounters. This volume sheds light on the sex lives of nineteenth-century men and women in Italy, on the ways they understood and experienced their sexual desires, and how their sexual behaviour was organised, regulated and constrained.

Review:

“Italian Sexualities Uncovered presents a series of innovative essays on both hetero- and homosexuality among women and men during the long nineteenth century. ... Babini, Beccalossi, and Riall are to be commended for putting together such a rich and varied collection of essays. ... As a pioneering model for subsequent research, Italian Sexualities Uncovered constitutes an essential step toward the incorporation of sexuality into the larger narrative of modern Italian history.” (Mary Gibson, Modern Italy, Vol. 21 (2), May, 2016)
