About Occupied Italy

Occupied Italy is a full-text, open access, peer-reviewed ejournal. It is dedicated to the study of the history of the Second World War in the Italian theatre and its immediate aftermath, starting from the invasion of Sicily by the Allied armies in 1943.

Occupied Italy was created with the aim of providing a platform for original and innovative research by Italian and foreign scholars on military, political, cultural and economic aspects relating to the period of the Allied and German occupation of the Italian territory, starting from Operation “Husky” and Operation “Avalanche”. With a strong focus on interdisciplinarity, the journal wants to emphasize the importance of Italian events in the context of the Second World War and of the national and international developments in the following period.

The journal’s aim is to create a platform for rigorous research among international historians.  We encourage contributions, in Italian and English, on the following topics (but not limited to them): the Allied military campaign in Italy; the German occupation and the RSI; Resistance and civil war; the political reconstruction of Italy; cultural and public memory of the war.
