Italy in the Seventies. Movements, political violence
and armed struggle between memory
and historiographical representation
The essay presents a critical appraisal of historiographical representation during the Seventies and the «movement period» in Italy, while attempting to pinpoint new investigative trails and new methodological approaches that might analyse the genesis and the transformation of the movements and opposition cultures in depth from a cultural and a social perspective, with particular emphasis being placed on the issue of political violence.
