Family has traditionally been important in Italian history and culture. Literature often represents father–son or mother–daughter relationships or those between siblings. Typically, novels have challenged the traditional idea of the Italian family, giving problematic thought-provoking portraits of this institution.

This course analyses the representation of families in some of the most important contemporary Italian writers, such as Alberto Moravia, Elsa Morante and Natalia Ginzburg. Through the investigation of memoirs, semi-autobiographical stories and fiction set in different decades of recent Italian history, the course highlights an evolution in the representation of this topic.
