  • Bare Life: Space and the Maternal in Laura Pugno’s La ragazza
           selvaggia
    • Abstract: This study examines Laura Pugno’s engagement with the notion of bare life through the questions of space, primal desire, and maternity in La ragazza selvaggia. Drawing on theories by Michel Foucault and Giorgio Agamben, the first section of the study investigates how the political acts upon and presides over the biological in the novel's spatial dimensions. This analysis extends to the realm of writing, which constitutes the territorio selvaggio [wild territory] of Pugno’s literary explorations. A Kristevan reading of Dasha and Nina's complicated relationship reveals the biopolitical tensions that underlie it. At the same time, an allegorical analysis of this dynamic considers them as incarnations of the semiotic and the symbolic, which are associated with zoē and bios, respectively. Turning its attention to the corporeal, the study ponders how the selvaggio is expressed through the body and simultaneously...

  • Mediterranean blues: archives, repertoires and the black holes of
           modernity
    • Abstract: The Mediterranean is often evoked as the metaphor for the various faces of modernity: from its presumed roots in classical Greece to the intertwining of Africa, Asia and Europe in its waters, emerging and insisting in today’s immigration ‘crisis’. Attempting to take methodological certainties and the universalizing history of Western modernity ‘offshore’, we propose to confront the sea not only in terms of a barrier or a bridge, but also as an ontological challenge. Thinking with the Mediterranean allows us to trace a history that questions and interrupts the institutional organisation of events and knowledge. Other scales of interpretation bring into play the potential of dissonance and a reworking of the inherited world into unexpected interpretations. Here, repertoires more than archives emerge as sites of constant re-elaboration and re-assemblage. If the Mediterranean exposes us to a ‘crisis’ – migrant, environmental – then it is a crisis of modernity itself, of...

  • The Barren Mediterranean: Rural Imaginary in Italian Colonial Libya
    • Abstract: The article considers the development of Italy’s Mediterranean identity from the country’s Unification to the Turco-Italian War (1911-1912). I show how Italy’s political ambition to restore Roman control over the Mediterranean Sea (Mare Nostrum) generated two alternative representations of the Roman myth: a sea-based and a land-based one. After the initial success of the maritime version of this myth, I argue that the years leading up to the war in Libya represented a shifting moment toward a reconsideration of the Romans’ agrarian legacy. Therefore, I maintain that an analysis of the Italian aesthetic of “Mediterraneism” should include representations of the natural environment. I show how Italians considered the idea of a uniform Mediterranean landscape as a natural historical landmark to testify the historical presence of the ancient Romans in North Africa and to legitimize the link between the Italian colonies and their supposedly glorious ancestors. Ultimately,...

  • Women Who Cross Borders. Elena Ferrante’s Smarginature and
           Transnational Belongings
    • Abstract: The aim of this essay is to offer new insights into Elena Ferrante’s poetics and aesthetic re-appropriations. Specifically, it focuses on the topic of “women who cross borders.” Women trespass boundaries on multiple levels: on an extra-textual level, the writer herself transgresses thresholds of national belonging between her alleged hometown of Naples – a powerful symbolic locus/location that comes to signify a sort of Mediterranean matrix – and the English-speaking world where her work has been highly praised. In visual media, her characters have crossed from the confines of the page to the frame of the transnational television screen in the Rai/HBO series adaptation of My Brilliant Friend (2018, 2020). Ferrante’s fictional women are also translated in the photography of American artist Francesca Woodman, which  powerfully (if unwittingly) foreshadows her poetics of frantumaglia and smarginatura. In this essay, I examine the ways in which Ferrante’s...

  • Lila Unbound: Critical Negativity and Entropy in Elena Ferrante’s
           Neapolitan Novels
    • Abstract: This article sets out to examine the epilogue of L’amica geniale as the site in the novels where Lila can be said to claim true authorship outside the bounds of Elena’s text. It contends that the mysterious return of the lost dolls at the end of the novel should be interpreted as a triumph on Lila’s part, offering warrant for that contention not by claiming that Lila herself orchestrated the return, but rather by positing that, in the novel’s treatment of the life-plot tension, Lila tends to be representative of the former and Elena of the latter. Thus, in marking the closing of the plot, the dolls index a return to “life,” and thus a recalibration of the text’s energies in favor of Lila. The article then employs Peter Brooks’s narrative theory to understand the thermodynamic effects that the return has on the text, proceeding to apply Teresa de Lauretis’s concept of the “space off” to argue that Lila’s victory extends beyond the simple competitiveness that governs her...

  • “Through a Glass Brightly: A Posthuman Re-reading of Fausta Cialente’s
           Cortile a Cleopatra”
    • Abstract: “Through a Glass Brightly: A Posthuman Re-reading of Fausta Cialente’s Cortile a Cleopatra” begins by arguing that posthumanism is both a new paradigm in the humanities and the theoretically ill-defined sensibility of the Anthropocene.  A pressing invitation to reimagine what it means to be human that is traversing simultaneously scholarship, political activism and popular culture, posthumanism can also be seen as a powerful lens that colors our perception of the past. While I make no claim for the historical continuity of a tradition of environmental consciousness and do not wish to project onto the past the philosophical stance of today’s posthumanism, my reading of Fausta Cialente’s 1936 novel Cortile a Cleopatra builds on contemporary feminist ecocritics’ and posthuman philosophers’ impatience with the legacy of humanism. Joining a new generation of scholars who bring to their construction of modernism a nuanced understanding of the continuum of the bond...

  • Gli animali nel primo Pusterla: una lettura eco-zoopoetica di «Il
           dronte» e «L’anguilla del Reno»
    • Abstract: Questo articolo presenta un’esplorazione delle configurazioni della presenza animale nell’opera di Fabio Pusterla e propone una mappatura di tentativi e delle strategie di avvicinamento all’animalità non-umana così come si configura in due fra le sue raccolte maggiori: Concessione all’inverno (1985) e Bocksten (1989). In una prima parte, l’articolo discute una serie di contesti teorico-critici di riferimento, soffermandosi sulle potenzialità del pensiero ecopoetico e di quello ecoregionale. In una seconda parte, il lavoro propone l’analisi di due testi esemplari: Il dronte e L’anguilla, che incarnano alcune delle caratteristiche fondamentali degli incontri più-che-umani all’interno del verso pusterliano. L’indagine si concentra in particolare su un utilizzo fisico del linguaggio e sulla materializzazione - nei versi e nelle forme - di ibridazioni, trasformazioni e mutazioni del soggetto poetico. Queste traiettorie vogliono suggerire, più...

  • Non dovevo ucciderlo nemmeno': Interspecific Killing and Kinship in
           Giovanni Verga’s Jeli il Pastore
    • Abstract: My paper presents a close reading of Giovanni Verga’s novella “Jeli il pastore” and investigates how this canonical 19th century verismo text undermines human/animal difference through its zoomorphic protagonist and its violent conclusion. Throughout the text, the narrator overtly characterizes Jeli in zoomorphic terms, and while Jeli’s bestial kinship initially permits him success in his line of work, it eventually makes him an outcast in the rural Sicilian community in which he lives. Southern, poor, orphaned, cornuto, animal: Jeli epitomizes the marginalized subject. In the novella’s dramatic conclusion, Jeli slits the throat of his rival Don Alfonso in a manner directly analogous to the killing of a non-human animal: “gli tagliò la gola di un sol colpo, proprio come un capretto.” This human murder parallels animal killings that Jeli witnessed in the past, encouraging us to question not only the humanity of the zoomorphic protagonist but also the humanity of killing non-human...

  • “Figlio d’un cane!” La figura di Attila nel folklore medievale tra
           tradizione epico-cavalleresca e zooerastia
    • Abstract: Nel presente articolo si analizza la leggenda di Attila nel Medioevo narrata nell’Estoire d’Atile en prose, un testo duecentesco in franco-veneto, dando particolare rilievo alle sue origini zooerastiche e alle conseguenze della sua duplice natura, e proponendo possibili soluzioni alla nascita di un racconto diffuso in tutta la penisola italiana tra il XIII e il XVI secolo. Il rapporto tra uomo e animale, qui usato per denigrare e de-umanizzare il nemico, acquista un significato spregiativo per cui un atto bestiale produce un essere bestiale dominato da violenza e rabbia, un ibrido che non segue gli impulsi e le inclinazioni proprie dell’umanità.

  • L’afrofuturismo tra Stati Uniti e Italia. Dallo schiavismo ai viaggi
           intergalattici per re-immaginare futuri postumani
    • Abstract: In this article the author explores the cultural movement called Afrofuturism, tracing its origins, features, simbology, and its historical and political meanings. Starting from the (supposed) discoursive gap between African and African American people on one side and technology and science fiction on the other, this paradigm addresses themes related to the intersection of African Diaspora and African cultures with technology and science fiction, with the aim to recover the history of slavery and racism through the projections into alternative space-time contexts. In particular, the author explores the feminist afrofuturism perspective in order to examine the specific oppression and cultural production of African and African American women. In doing so, the author analyzes the development of afrofuturism in Italy, focusing on the work of the singer and beatmaker Karima 2G.

  • L’isola “arcipelagica”di Ocaña ne L’Iguana di
           Anna Maria Ortese
    • Abstract: Questo lavoro, incentrato sull’isola di Ocaña in cui è ambientato gran parte del romanzo L’Iguana di Anna Maria Ortese, non solo rappresenta un contributo italiano al filone degli island studies, ma evidenzia anche la portata "planetaria" ed ecologica del testo di Ortese. Mentre la prima parte del saggio parla del legame della scrittrice con la dimensione dell’isola, la seconda parte applica a L’Iguana le teorie sviluppate da Edouard Glissant nei suoi Caribbean Discourse (titolo originale Le Discours Antillais) e Poetics of Relations (titolo originale Poétique de la relation) e dà rilevanza alla parte conclusiva del romanzo di Ortese, finora oggetto di scarsa attenzione da parte della critica. Si dimostra quindi come l’isola immaginata da Ortese sfida i diversi tipi di colonialismo che si succedono nel corso della vicenda romanzesca e li ingloba in sé mostrandone, in modo creativo, i limiti. Inoltre,...

  • In Their Own Voices: A ‘Kenotic’ Approach to Animal Studies
           and Ecotheology
    • Abstract: Human interactions with nonhuman animals, in the Anthropocene, are increasingly marked by incomprehension and violence. More than at any other time in human history, we are called to listen to the cries of fellow creatures, what Scriptures refer to as the “groaning” of the earth. For centuries, Italy has offered the model of Francis of Assisi who, even before preaching to birds, saving lambs, and taming a wolf, knew how to listen to them in a self-emptying act of recognition of “animals” (from anima) as “brothers’ and “sisters,” thus bridging the ontological divide between humans and animals. Through a kenotic reading of Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures, this essay explores ethical questions emerging from the recent “animal turn” in theology, the humanities, and Italian literature. In particular, by focusing on recent readings of the poem, which include Luigi Santucci’s rewriting of the Canticle from the perspective of the animals...

Following Serenella Iovino’s (2014) insight that Calvino’s literary production can be seen as encapsulating some of the tenets of posthumanism, the paper first investigates Calvino’s conception of storytelling, arguing that in Fiabe Italiane folk and fairy tales can be compared to Calvino’s investigation of variants, leading to the development of a post-anthropocentric type of narrative. Employing Gilles Deleuze’s concept of becoming, it then discusses metamorphosis as a form of becoming–animal, challenging the idea of an ontological categorization of humans and animals. Ultimately, the paper proposes a posthumanist reading of “Body-without-Soul” by highlighting how becoming–animal allows a rearrangement of the hierarchy between humans and the non-human world and promotes behaviors based on trust and codependence....

  • L’uomo è l’animale irritato. Una rilettura distopico-odeporica de Il
           pianeta irritabile di Paolo Volponi
    • Abstract: Looking at italian contemporary literature, specifically novels, there are some literary works that emerges with predominance for their precursory blend of genres and also socio-cultural perspectives. This is the case of Paolo Volponi’s Il pianeta irritabile, a sort of stratified novel in which sci-fi, fable, bildungsroman, allegory, social complaint, experimentation on language, philosophy enquiries etc. form a new way of analyzing the complexity of a modernity totally involved in an economic and capitalistic trend, renewing the idea of a literature that is conflict and also a warning for the future generations. This paper intends to address and often overlooked issue for an approach to the Volponi’s novel that is at the same time a dystopian one, for the environmental issue, for example, but also for the “post-apocalyptic” point of view, but especially an hodoeporic one, because the macro-phenomenon of voyage intended as a transformation force is an undeniable fulcrum...

  • Futurism's Fish Tanks: Rethinking the Human in Marinetti and Bontempelli
    • Abstract: Although separated by a span of nearly twenty years, both F.T. Marinetti’s Mafarka le futuriste (1909) and Massimo Bontempelli’s Minnie la candida (1928) investigate the ontological parameters of humanness through comparison and confrontation with the nonhuman animal, and, in particular, with fish. This article takes up this shared trope of the fish to examine how both authors position themselves with regards to the Futurist movement’s fervent interest in mankind’s relationship to technology and the natural world. While in his mythopoeic novel on the origins of Futurism, Marinetti utilizes Mafarka’s crystal aquarium to suggest a prepotent fusion of nature and technology through which the dangers posed by the natural world are either excised or contained through the mediation of technology, the fish tank of Bontempelli’s play is used to portray technology’s indiscriminate intrusions on the natural world and on that world’s bodies, both human and nonhuman. By...

  • “Se è, può essere.” Animali fantastici ne La stiva e l’abisso di
           Michele Mari
    • Abstract: This article studies the fantastic interaction between human and non-human animals in Michele Mari’s novel La stiva e l’abisso. By doing so, it proposes an interpretation that contextualizes the novel as a fictional representation of autopoiesis, anthropocentrism and the post-human. More specifically, the essay isolates three main narrative devices that Mari’s novel employs: obsession, the fantastic mode and food consumption. Thus, it suggests a connection between narrative techniques and philosophical implications, while focusing on the transition from the literary portrayal of supernatural events to realistic concerns.
