Recent years have witnessed growing interdisciplinary interest in the culture, performance and practice of Italian Fascism, and in the architecture and planning of the regime. This conference aims to address the wider transformation and use of public spaces under Mussolini. In particular, it considers urban landscapes as sites for the spectacles and performances of Fascist cultures, and the roles of human bodies in enacting the rituals of Fascism in these spaces.
The conference will be of interest to historians, Italianists, planners and architectural scholars, geographers, anthropologists, sociologists, cultural studies specialists and others.
