L'immoralità della morale: giovani donne nell'italia degli anni Cinquanta del Novecento

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The desire of the population to forget the misfortunes of the war, the pressure of Catholic morals and a pressing American lifestyle, which entered part of the Italian landscape, are some of the factors that in the Fifties contributed to change the daily and the mentality of families and of young Italian women fought between modernity and tradition. Through a reading of the languages of "Noi Donne" and "Famiglia Cristiana", but also with reference to the Neorealist Cinema, it was reflected on the "public use of the private" of miles of women by the PCI and the DC.
