Reviews

“Italian Sexualities Uncovered presents a series of innovative essays on both hetero- and homosexuality among women and men during the long nineteenth century. … Babini, Beccalossi, and Riall are to be commended for putting together such a rich and varied collection of essays. … As a pioneering model for subsequent research, Italian Sexualities Uncovered constitutes an essential step toward the incorporation of sexuality into the larger narrative of modern Italian history.” (Mary Gibson, Modern Italy, Vol. 21 (2), May, 2016)
