The article deals with Anna Rossi-Doria’s essays on the history of the Southern Italian peasant world in the post-Second World War years. Rossi-Doria focused on the relationship between these movements and the political parties (in particular the Communist Party) and the trade unions, but, above all, she studied their need to be part of history and the ways in which they acquired awareness. Unlike the long and extensive historiography that has only seen the political aspects of these peasant struggles in the Italian “Mezzogiorno”, Rossi-Doria takes into consideration a number of different issues, making political and social history interact.
