Letteratura e memoria: lo sguardo della donna sulla storia del Sudtirolo


  • Adriana Vignazia



Parole chiave:

Liretarure and Memory, women's novels, women and social exclusion, history of South Tyrol


The historical novels analysed express the wish to contribute to a deeper understanding of the “other”, by showing the consequences of historical events on the private lives of the excluded, primarily women. Francesca Melandri recounts the history of the region from the perspective of the women of the Huber family, attesting to the need to open up and embrace diversity. Lilli Gruber confronts taboo subjects in the German-speaking community by denouncing complicity with Nazism and international terrorist plots. Anna Rottensteiner shows the pervasiveness of fascism and the high price of disillusionment. Astrid Kofler, in contrast to the stereotype of the fascist teacher, presents a teacher who is attentive to the needs of her pupils, criticises the situation of women of the period, the social exclusion of Roma and traveller communities and the problem of their integration.
