This course studies novels, films, and theoretical texts which address issues related to the Italian Resistance as a historical and political event and to the problematic reconstruction of the nation in the years between 1940 and 1950. We will also be analyzing the way in which the notion of "resistance" has been affecting the literary and cultural production and the way of thinking and imagining Italian national identity in a frame of time going beyond the immediate postwar period and covering a wider historical frame.

Authors studied include Italo Calvino, Elio Vittorini, Renata Viganò, Giorgio Bassani and Cesare Pavese.
