IL SEGNO DEL COMANDO
The bite size articles are the perfect length — I find that if an article is too long, my brain refuses to co-operate, and gives up trying to translate it. Many thanks Daniel and son! I think it is well written and clearly presented. If it were an option, like the easy reader series I would subscribe! I am really enjoying this addition to your website. Prego, Donna. Following the example of Julius Caesar crossing the river Rubicon in 49 BC , Mussolini portrayed the Marcia su Roma as having been his very own crossing of the Rubicon although making the Milan-Rome trip by train.
Apart from the publicitary and academic means underpinning the propaganda surrounding antiquity cf.

Citation: Fascism 3, 1 ; The salute was swiftly and successfully adopted by many. This substitution of one of the most basic and everyday gestures was a constant, simultaneously implicit and explicit, reminder of the new Fascist reality. Furthermore, the anniversary of the March on Rome became one of the major Italian holidays for some twenty years. Among the more traditional and somewhat less obviously manipulative ways in which the tangible remnants of ancient Rome were utilised were a number of antiquarian expositions.
One such event stands out as by far the most notable: the bimillenary birthday exposition organised in honour of Roman emperor Augustus in — Added to this, the Mostra della Rivoluzione Fascista , 11 an exposition celebrating ten years of Fascist power first organised in , was re-opened; combined with considerably reduced transport fares, this made the trip to Rome even more accessible to the wider public.
Originally conceived as the site of the universal exposition proposed to be staged in , this project was completed after the demise of Fascism. However, part of its buildings date back to the s. However, the myth of Rome was also cultivated, and disseminated, so to speak, from the bottom upwards, especially when it came to its more academic or purely discursive treatment. As has been illustrated, the topos of the Fascist Third Rome became manifest in various ways, penetrating much of the cultural spectrum, inculcating a new Italian identity and self-consciousness by constant reference to an idealised image of the Roman past.
Apart from these aesthetic manifestations, the major academic disciplines that dealt with the matter of antichistica — classicists, archaeologists, historians — often supported the top down ideological message, providing research based evidence presented in a number of scientific publications, along with the organisation of expositions, and participating in public-oriented initiatives such as those organised by the highly prolific Istituto di Studi Romani.
Grace, Melancholy, and the Uncanny. How can one make poetry in a disenchanted age? For Giacomo Leopardi this was the mode Still, in the poems written in between Pisa and the Marches, Leopardi manages to turn disillusion into a powerful source of inspiration, through an unprecedented balance between poetic lightness and philosophical density.
The addressees of these cantos are two prematurely dead maidens bearing names of nymphs, and thus obliquely metamorphosed into the charmingly disquieting deities that in Greek lore brought knowledge and poetic speech through possession. The nymph, Camilletti argues, can be seen as the inspirational power allowing the utterance of a new kind of poetry, bridging antiquity and modernity, illusion and disenchantment, life and death.
In a violent literary quarrel engulfed Bourbon Restoration Italy. On one side the Romantics On one side the Romantics wanted an opening up of Italian culture towards Europe, and on the other the Classicists favoured an inward-looking Italy, based on its Greco-Roman roots. Giacomo Leopardi — , a young poet and philosopher, wrote a Discourse of an Italian on Romantic Poetry in , aiming to contribute to the debate from a new perspective; it was finally published in It is placed in context and its potential impact on contemporary Restoration Italy is assessed.
