The 1978 kidnapping and murder of Christian Democrat politician, Aldo Moro, marked the watershed of Italy’s experience of political violence in the period known as the ‘years of lead’ (1969-c.1983). This uniquely interdisciplinary volume explores the evolving legacy of Moro’s death in the Italian cultural imaginary, from the late 1970s to the present. Bringing a wide range of critical perspectives to bear, interventions by experts in the fields of political science, social anthropology, philosophy, and cultural critique elicit new understandings of the events of 1978 and explain their significance and relevance to present-day Italian culture and society.
