Storia e Problemi Contemporanei vol:27 issue:66 pages:1-10
This section of «Storia e problemi contemporanei» explores the way concepts of generation, identity and memory of the 1968 movement are related to one other. More specifically, it studies representations of 1968 on television and in the cinema, and in doing so it offers new interpretative approaches to an extremely vital, important and complex period in Italy’s recent past. The key questions that are addressed in the three papers that make up this special section are as follows: how is the generational paradigm constructed in movies about 1968? Who are the protagonists and the “mythical” locations of 1968 that make it to the big screen? Finally, how do history and memory relate to one another in these productions?
