Violence is a feature of all human societies in every era. This unit examines the cultural significance of violence in Italy, from the Ancient Roman amphitheatre to the language of twentieth-century Fascist violence and post-war Italy’s confrontation with left and right-wing terrorism, the ‘years of lead’, and Italy’s continuing struggle with the Mafia. Themes include urban violence in Medieval, Renaissance and Early-Modern Italy, religious, gender and sexual violence, crime and punishment, and nationalist representations of violence in the nineteenth century.
