Italian Cityscapes examines the transformation of the Italian city from the 1950s to the present with particular attention to questions of identity, migration and changes in urban culture. It focuses on two phases of that transformation: the years of accelerated industrialization in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and the period of de-industrialization and postmodernity beginning in the 1980s. The book shows how major demographic movements and cultural shifts threw into relief new conceptions of the city in which old boundaries had become problematic. The extensive illustrations give a vivid picture of the contemporary visual culture for which Italian cities are famed. Robert Lumley is Professor of Italian Cultural History, University College London. John Foot is Lecturer in Italian History, University College London.
