This book explores the variety of means by which political information has been conveyed in Italy from the early post-war period to the current era when political discourse takes second place to style, image, and soundbite. Examined are both official forms of communication (cinema, government newsreel, the press, election broadcasts) and more informal, clandestine forms of communication mostly originating from social movements, pressure groups and other organizations outside the party system (satire, political songs, terrorism).
