«Making Italians». 150 Years in Exhibition in Turin. In the context of a positive review, the author criticizes the exhibition at Turin of 150 years of Italian unity because it provides a representation of the process of unification of Italians in which conflicts are softened or removed: a tendency that the author attributes to the curators’ explicit intention to give particular prominence to the elements that strengthen the sense of belonging to our national community. The author remarks that the curators have privileged the multimedia diversification of the sources rather than their in-depth analysis.
Keywords: Nation building, inclusion/exclusion, multimediality, identification/ estrangement.
