The phenomenon of Italian Fascism will be studied in order to explore its rise, principal characteristics and its failure - relevant issues as manifested in A. Moravia's novel II Conformista will be considered.
The texts chosen to study the Italian Resistance and related issues are L'Agnese va a morire by R Vigano, and La ragazza di Bube by C Cassola.
The subject will be further illustrated by film/documentary material and excerpts from R Rossellini's film Paisa and Bertolucci's film based on A. Moravia's novel.
