This chapter identifies the elements of formal, filmic, representational, or linguistic continuity between fascism and the post-World War II period in Italy. It discusses the new interpretation of fascist cinema that began in the middle of the 1970s; the beginnings of De Sica’s neorealism; and the broader cultural climate of the 1930s that reflected the poetics of neorealism.
