PUBLIC TALK: Italy’s Fragile Unity. The North & the South: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
|Italy’s Fragile Unity. The North & the South: Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow
A public lecture by John Davis, the Emiliana Pasca Noether Professor of Modern Italian History, University of Connecticut and 2017 UWA Fred Alexander Fellow.
Ever since Unification in the mid 19th century, the differences between the north and the south - the ‘Southern Question’ - have been a distinguishing feature of the modern Italian state. This discussion will focus on the period since the Second World War and will attempt to explain why in the last half century the disparities have increased and to examine the consequences, at a moment when for the first time popular secessionist movements similar to anti-party and anti-state movements elsewhere in Europe are spreading across southern Italy.
