"Questo libro mi ricorda la parte iniziale di Caro diario di Nanni Moretti. Là un uomo d'estate girava in Vespa per Roma deserta, e questo dava l'emozione di veder scorrere le immagini delle strade, le facciate delle case, il grande silenzio quotidiano, come se vedessimo e ascoltassimo tutto per la prima volta. In Avventure in Africa c'è la stessa emozione di veder scorrere le immagini della vita, come in un primo sguardo trasognato del mattino che riscatta tutte le esperienze di viaggio, sia quelle immaginate che quelle vissute. Come quello di Nanni Moretti anche questo è un diario, che diventa un racconto a zigzag, spesso comico, e con un fedele studio della vita dei turisti. Sembra che un'invisibile macchina da presa segua ‘l'uomo che scrive’ nel lungo tragitto attraverso il Mali, il Senegal e la Mauritania, soltanto per portarci a guardare il mondo con affetto.".

This anthology serves as a literary map to guide readers through the varied geography of contemporary Italian fiction. Massimo Riva has gathered English-language translations of short stories and excerpts from novels that were originally published in Italian between 1975 and 2001. As an expression of a communal contemporary condition, these narratives suggest a new sensibility and a new way of seeing, exploring, and inhabiting the world, in writing. Riva provides a comprehensive introduction to Italian literary trends of the past twenty years. Each selection is preceded by a short introduction and biography of the writer. For English-language readers who are familiar with the work of Italo Calvino and Umberto Eco, this collection presents an opportunity to acquaint themselves with the work of other important contemporary Italian writers of fiction.

Italy's First African War (1880-1896) pitted a young and ambitious European nation against the ancient Empire of Ethiopia. The Least of Europe's Great Powers rashly assailed Africa's most formidable military power. The outcome was humiliating defeat for Italy and the survival, uniquely for any African nation in the years of the European Scramble for that continent, of Ethiopian independence. Notwithstanding Italy's disastrous first experience in the colonial fray, this book argues that the impact of the war went well beyond the battlefields of the Ethiopian highlands and reached into the minds of the Italian people at home. Through a detailed and exhaustive study of Italian popular culture, this book asks how far the First African War impacted on the Italian nation-building project and how far Italians were themselves changed by undergoing the experience of war and defeat in East Africa. Finaldi argues, for the first time in historiography on the subject, that there was substantial support for and awareness of Italy's military campaign and that 'Empire', as has come to be regarded as fundamental in the histories of other European countries, needs to be brought firmly into the mainstream of Italian national history. This book is an essential contribution to debates on the relationship between European national identity and culture and imperialism in the late 19th century.
