Focusing on his historical novel La controra, Antonino Nocito Alloni’s multimedia lecture will explore Italy’s transition to a unified nation as well as the formation of an Italian identity, while also addressing Italian emigration to the United States. Covering almost a century of political struggles and social turmoil, this lecture analyses not only a painful coming of age, at a time of great upheaval, but also the historical process that molded diverse peoples into one new nation.
