ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the state of transition in Italian culture over the years. The origins of a new culture in Italy may be traced to the conflict which developed in the late nineteenth century between an old composite society and the democratic elements working against it. The new culture was, of course, blighted by Fascism. But the tradition of free thought was alive, and it was primarily from this influence that the resistance received its support during the World War II. After the war, there was a great interest in foreign books in translation. The years 1946 and 1947 represented the beginning of a real renaissance, in which the progressive elements in Italy identified themselves with the liveliest minds abroad.
