    Sponsored by Ca’ Foscari University and the Venice Center for International Jewish Studies.

    The talk "Auschwitz - Italy", which is further developed in the upcoming volume The Holocaust in Italian Culture, 1944-2010, is a fragment of the cultural history of the memory of the Shoah in Italy that Gordon has reconstructed from the period immediately following the war to modern times, following the evolution of literary accounts and of the public discourse.
    Moderated by Simon Levis Sullam.

    Robert Gordon is a Reader in Modern Italian Culture at the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom) and Head of the Department of Italian. He specializes in 20th-century Italian literature, cinema and cultural history and is widely published on the films of Pasolini and censorship during fascism. He is also considered an expert on Primo Levi and has published several books including Primo Levi’s Ordinary Virtues: from Testimonies to Ethics (Oxford University Press 2001; tr. it.
