Abstract

This book chapter argues that although the women's liberation movement has been ignored by mainstream Italian cinema, the documentary has become the privileged mode of cultural production for the representation of this significant time in Italian history. The analysis focuses primarily on two documentaries that deal with the relationship between history and memory, and employ self-reflexive strategies of cinematic representation of private and public memory.
