Full Article:

Generally characterized as Neorealist, a term derived from the work of such filmmakers and writers as Roberto Rossellini and Italo Calvino, postwar Italian culture is typically believed to have diverged significantly from Fascist culture in both its subjects and its techniques. Contrary to this story, this paper will argue that Italian design, and Neorealism more broadly, is more accurately understood as the product of existing lines of research and debate.
