SETTING THE SCENE: THE ARCHITECTURAL IMAGINATION OF RENAISSANCE ARTISTS
FRIDAY 24 MAY 2019
WARWICK IN LONDON, STANLEY BUILDING, 7 PANCRAS SQUARE, LONDON
The regimes of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany were bound by ideological, diplomatic, cultural, and eventually, military ties. Although those ties wove deep connections between the two countries, the histories of interwar Germany and Italy have largely been written following parallel lines. Attempts to compare the two countries are relatively few and present methodological problems.

In 2011 Canadian scholar John Clute in Pardon This Intrusion: Fantastika in the World Storm introduces the umbrella term “fantastika” aimed at encompassing fantasy, science fiction and horror. The production of “fantastika” crosses genres in a spurious way and seems to escape from clear classifications, remaining somehow at the periphery of the literary system. In the light of this, an even more elusive object of critical analysis is constituted by the narrative space of women writers, which we here intend to investigate by adopting a comparative and multi-genre perspective.
