Modern Italian History Seminar Series

Antonio Carbone (Deutsches Historisches Institut in Rom)

Empire, Mediterranean, Southern and Western Europe, First World and Third World: What regional and global imaginaries did post-war Italian developmentalists produce or imply? Antonio Carbone explores the global intellectual history of the nuovo meridionalismo and analyses, through the discussion on the Southern Italian Question, how experts shaped visions of Italy’s position within global and European macro-regional imaginaries.
