Documenting the Italian political and military actions of World War Two
A selection of propaganda posters during the Italian fascist period.
Many thanks, I am just happy to know that these posters are actually in existence!
I bought most of them through ebay. Give it a shot.
wonderful – thank you!
Give me sometime I do have some books that could help.
The copyright issue is ok, unless I get the image from a book, which is unfortunately the only place I have found them, so far.
Would you know where the images on this site come from? Some of the posters I have seen elsewhere, but some appear only here.
I think Jim is right and the best way to get what you want is throgh museum.
I believe there is no copyright to worry about in regards to WWII Italian propaganda posters. At least that is what I heard on multiple occasions from a variety of sources. It was printed by the Fascist government for the public domain. Just my 2 cents. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
I am still working on the book, but the basic point will be that the culture surrounding fascism idealized a certain type of individual–clean, strong and selfless. Something like the “lavorare e combattere” image expresses it well. Even better would be something that shows how the new society shapes the individual-for example by joining the military.
The other thing I would need (besides copyright clearance) would be a high resolution image – something that could go into a print publication. With other images, I have been able to find candidates online, and then contact the library or museum for a publication quality version.
HI Coty21 if I my ask what do you need.
As a professional historian, let me thank you for this wonderfully informative site!
I have been looking for Italian propaganda posters for a book I am preparing to send to press, and I can confirm that such materials are indeed hard to find (the University of Wisconsin library has some in its special collections page).
Would anyone know how I could find a higher resolution copy of some of these posters?
This is an example of a widgeted area.
