Rugged Nation Mountains and the making of Modern Italy

, : Rugged Nation Mountains and the making of Modern Italy.

This is a book about mountains and Italianess. This association may sound strange to foreign ears for, as Armiero says in the introduction, mountains seem to lack the typical ingredients of Italianess (p. 1) for people who are not so familiar with Italian history and culture. Yet, in less than 200 pages, Armiero proves the centrality of the Alps and the Apennines in the narratives of the nation and its territory from the very beginning of the process of unification, and also in the conception and implementation of major public policies related to forestry, energy, tourism, and other issues. To reach his goal, Armiero does not rely exclusively on the well-known and very fruitful literature focusing on the making of national landscapes. He could have done this, providing one more analysis for a State, a nation and a territory which has been less studied than others in Europe and America. This book is not yet another case study within this academic framework. Following recent example.
