In the Name of Italy

Nation, Family, and Patriotism in a Fascist Court

Maura Hametz

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • Fascinating look at how Fascist Italy tried to maintain nationalism by changing family names to sound more Italian as was the case for the elderly widow who did not want her name changed from Paulovich to Paoli. She won!
  • Explores the shifting perceptions of the importance of individual rights and community responsibilities in interwar Italy
  • A contribution to the study of Italian Fascism, so often overlooked in favor of the study of Nazism
