La collaborazione artistica nella letteratura italiana del novecento

Edited by Sarah Bonciarelli and Bart Van Den Bossche.

The historical avant-gardes of the early twentieth century felt a strong need to overcome the strict divisions between artistic disciplines, and thus developed several interartistic forms of expression. A case in point is Italian futurism, to which four essays in this volume are dedicated, zooming in on, among others, Antonia Saccoccio, Sylvie Viglino and Paolo Buzzi. Other essays deal with the mixing of languages, cultures and genres, and thus display the avant-gardes' transformative literary character. Finally, the influence of visual culture and media as well as the importance of the theatre and its performative character are touched upon to gain a a better understanding of the previous century's formative decades in Italian literature.
