"An important contribution to the field of postcolonial studies, this volume offers wide-ranging and provocative analyses of the intricately interconnected legacies of colonialism, emigration, and global migration in Italy. Mapping a landscape of postcolonial studies that is unique to Italy in terms of its regimes of race, gender, citizenship and cultural transformations, Postcolonial Italy engenders radically new and challenging critiques of hegemonic British/Indian/USA centered formulations of postcolonial studies." - Chandra Talpade Mohanty, author of Feminism Without Borders, Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity (2003)

"An essential book for any scholar of modern Italy, but in fact for anybody interested in the perduring effects of colonialism in today's globalized world, Postcolonial Italy has the rare merit of casting a bold look not only at the silenced history of Italian colonialism overseas, but also at that chapter of Italy's internal colonialism known as 'the southern question.' The contributions, drawing from postcolonial studies, cultural studies, race theory, and gender studies, will be of compelling interest to readers in a wide range of fields." - Roberto Dainotto, Professor of Italian and of Literature, Duke University, USA

"This is an important collection of critical essays which engages head-on with the challenging inheritance of colonialism. Today, it is the return of this negated past in representations of race, racism and the much-maligned migrant that poses the principal political challenge of a heterogeneous, postcolonial Italy." - Iain Chambers, Universita degli Studi di Napoli 'L'Orientale,' Italy
