This book brings together nineteen studies exploring original research perspectives that seek to expand our understanding of the concept of resistance in Italian culture. The scope is not restricted to the theme of the political Resistance leading up to and following World War II, or to the legacy of the Resistance in the context of modern Italian society and its institutions – as has been the case of all important volumes that have dealt with this subject so far. Instead, we have embraced historical and multidisciplinary perspectives to examine ideas and practices adopted from early modern Italy to the 21st century challenging ideologies, political powers, patriarchal society, and, more recently, globalisation. In doing so, we intend to recognize that the concept of resistance should be seen as a distinctive mark of Italian cultural identity.
