IRISH IN ITALY
Irish in Italy is an exhibition which explores the reception of Irish literary culture in Italy in the first half of the 20th century.
This fascinating project is curated by Dr Antonio Bibbò, who along with organizers Dr Daragh O’Connell (Department of Italian) Crónán Ó Doibhlin (Head of Research Collections), put together a fascinating narrative of the interrelationship between Ireland and Italy in the 20th century, especially the reception of Irish literary culture on the Italian peninsula. Irish in Italy follows two major themes: first, the long and bloody history of Irish independence, and the differing versions of this history which were presented in early twentieth-century Italy; - a history whose centenary we are currently living and re-examining - and second, the story of the Irish Literary Revival and its dissemination and reception in Liberal and Fascist Italy.
