From the inception of Italian public television in the mid-1950s engagement with history has been a distinctive feature of domestic drama production. Past events, war events, the lives of noteworthy individuals, have in the years represented a suitable source of inspiration and provided wealthy of subject matter for countless historical TV dramas. Biographies, however, have gained prominence and come to constitute the primary means through which public history is created and circulated as a ‘hall of fame’ and arena for performance of righteous Italianness. The hugely successful biopic Perlasca. An Italian hero (2002) provides the appropriate case study to illustrate this typically Italian feature and to account for the entanglement of past history and present politics of memorialization.

More about this publication?
  • Until a short time ago, in German speaking countries there has neither been a periodical dealing primarly with interdisciplinary research of the Middle Ages, nor has there been a forum for regular publications in other languages. Wishing to close this gap, the journal «Mediaevistik» therefore pursues two aims: 1. To publish research methods and results which deal with studies within the different categories of the Middle Ages as a subject, and 2. to offer a forum for studies in all other important European languages and thus stressing and furthering the internationality of this particular field of research. The time frame is approx. the 8th to the 16th century, corresponding with the geographical boundaries of Latin Christianity in the High Middle Ages.

    All articles in Mediaevistik are published as full open access articles under a CC-BY Creative Commons license 4.0. There are no submission charges and no Article Processing Charges as these are fully funded by institutions through Knowledge Unlatched, resulting in no direct charge to authors.
