Five lectures examining the urban and architectural history of modern and contemporary Rome from 1870 to the present day
In 1870 Rome was still the capital of the Papal State and the capital of the Catholic world. 10 months after Italian conquest, in the summer of 1871 all the institutions of the Kingdom of Italy were transferred to Rome. However, it was to take decades before the new lay capital of the Italian state grew into its new role. This process is illustrated through a certain fundamental passages: the physical transformation of the city, the establishment of a different and more articulated social stratification, the invention of a new public political space in the liberal era and its reinvention by Fascism in the name of the myth of imperial Rome.
Vittorio Vidotto, a former professor of contemporary history at La Sapienza University, Rome, has investigated political, social and urban history. Dealing with these issues he has published, among others, Roma Contemporanea (Laterza 2006, II ed., apliata), Roma capital (edited by, Laterza 2002) and Italiani/e. Dal miracolo economico a oggi (2005). Together with G. d’Autilia and G. Sabbatucci, he also edited the volume L’Italia e la Grande Guerra (Enciclopedia Italiana-Treccani 2015).
