Annali d'Italianistica: The New Italy and the Jews from Massimo d'Azeglio to Primo Levi
Professor Scott Lerner has recently published The New Italy and the Jews: From Massimo D’Azeglio to Primo Levi, together with co-editor Professor Jonathan Druker of Illinois State University. Here’s how he describes this multi-year collaborative project:
On the eve of the Revolution of 1848, the Italian patriot Massimo D’Azeglio, calling on Pope Pius IX to abolish the Jewish ghetto of Rome and emancipate the Jews, explicitly connected the status of Italian Jewry to the project of Italian unification and nationhood. D’Azeglio’s dual campaign on behalf of Italian Jewry and Italian unification stands as the point of departure for this volume, which addresses these and many other questions related to the place of Italian Jewish culture and history in the birth and development of the Italian nation from the nineteenth century Risorgimento to the present.
The publication contains an introduction and 19 original essays by an international group of scholars working in a variety of academic fields, including F&M’s Professor Lerner and Professor Marco Di Giulio, chair of the Department of Italian Studies and of the program in Judaic Studies.
