Encyclopedia of Contemporary Italian Culture

The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Italian Culture is an  A-Z book.  It was carefully put together and has a lot of information about the different kinds of Italian culture after 1945. With more than 900 entries from people all over the world, this book is truly interdisciplinary.

It covers traditional political, economic, and legal issues, with a focus on popular culture topics that haven’t gotten much attention. The entries range from short definitions, histories, or biographies to longer overviews of themes, movements, institutions, and people, from advertising to fascism and from Pirelli to Zeffirelli.

The Encyclopedia is meant to give teachers and students information and ideas in the following fields:

  • Italian language and literature
  • Arts, Humanities, and Social Science
  • European Studies
  • Media and Cultural Studies
  • Business and Management
  • Art and Design

It has a lot of cross-references, a list of topics, and suggestions for what to read next.


Gino Moliterno has written extensively about contemporary Italian culture with the Encyclopedia of Italian Culture.  He is an expert in the fields of comparative literature, film studies and Italian studies. He is a lecturer in Italian Film Studies at the Australian National University.
