Internal exile in Fascist Italy

History and representations of confino

First Edition

Piero Garofalo, Elizabeth Leake, and Dana Renga

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides a clear, concise, readable introduction to the Fascist-era practice of internally exiling dissidents-one that is receiving renewed critical attention.
  • Offers the first in-depth analysis of representations of the exile experience in literature and in film.
  • Enhances understanding of how contemporary social discourse promotes a political agenda rooted in manifestations (e.g. populism, anti-terrorism, nationalism, ethnocentrism) that are historically related to Fascism's suppression of dissidents.
  • A timely, accessible study of internal exile, crucial to understanding the roots of European federalism at a time when its viability is being debated.
