Italy has had a long-standing tradition of graphic novels for decades, from the beginning of the twentieth century to now. Historical, humorous, mysterious, adventurous, noir, erotic, informative: they speak of the history of a country that found an original voice through storie a fumetti, especially during difficult times (post-World War II, the Seventies, recent years). Papers on any aspect of graphic novels in Italian are welcome.
