Irma Bandiera and Maria Goretti: gender role models for communist girls in Italy (1945-56)
Our girls must pay great attention to the economic and social problems of female workers and students, and fight against corruption and moral decay, against the pornographic press. This fight, in a broader meaning, is a priority because it is the fight to defend and to assert the dignity and personality of Italian girls: that personality that expresses itself in the taste, the fashion, the appearance, the expectation for modern life, and that also expresses itself in the morality and spirit of sacrifice of which the Italian tradition is so full, the tradition of Irma Bandiera and Maria Goretti.

- Twentieth Century Communism provides an international forum for the latest research on the subject and an entry-point into key developments and debates not immediately accessible to English-language historians. Its main focus is on the period of the Russian revolution (1917-91) and on the activities of communist parties themselves but its remit also extends to the movement's antecedents and rivals, the responses to communism of political competitors and state systems, and to the cultural as well as political influence of communism.
