Beschrijving Routledge Research in Art and Politics: Italian Modern Art in the Age of Fascism

This book examines the work of several avant-garde artists, including Giorgio de Chirico, Fortunato Depero, Scipione and Mario Radice, working in Italy during Benito Mussolini’s rise and fall. It provides a new history of the relationship between modern art and fascism. The study begins from the premise that artists belonging to avant-garde art movements, such as futurism, surrealism, expressionism and abstraction, could produce works that were perfectly amenable to the ideologies of Mussolini’s regime. A particular focus of the book is the precise relationship between ideas of history and modernity encountered in the art and politics of the time and how compatible these truly were.
