On the occasion of the first centenary celebrations of Rome as the Italian capital (1971), Dolores Prato went further into the history, the urban landscape and traditions of Rome, with special attention to the transformations and destructions – a real “murder” – suffered by the city since it became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, passing through the Fascist rhetoric and the consolidation of industrial capitalism. She expressed her views in articles published between 1950 and 1970 on Paese Sera, a newspaper that sympathized with the Italian Communist Party, and in a considerable amount of notes, sketches, images written for Voce fuori coro, an unpublished pamphlet in contrast with the mainstream hi- storiography of the Risorgimento. What emerges is an anti-myth of the capital and, at the same time, a narrative of a popular city of small hidden miracles, born to be a metropolis of the catholic world rather than the capital of a national state.

Abstract

On the occasion of the first centenary celebrations of Rome as the Italian capital (1971), Dolores Prato went further into the history, the urban landscape and traditions of Rome, with special attention to the transformations and destructions – a real “murder” – suffered by the city since it became the capital of the Kingdom of Italy, passing through the Fascist rhetoric and the consolidation of industrial capitalism. She expressed her views in articles published between 1950 and 1970 on Paese Sera, a newspaper that sympathized with the Italian Communist Party, and in a considerable amount of notes, sketches, images written for Voce fuori coro, an unpublished pamphlet in contrast with the mainstream hi- storiography of the Risorgimento. What emerges is an anti-myth of the capital and, at the same time, a narrative of a popular city of small hidden miracles, born to be a metropolis of the catholic world rather than the capital of a national state.
