Modern Italy: A Very Short Introduction
Sunday 26 March 2017
Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Professor of Italian studies Anna Cento Bull looks at what modernity means to Italy and asks what modern Italy stands for. She considers Italy’s political system and style of government, and looks at its economic modernisation and issues with emigration, internal migration and immigration.
