abstract

This chapter explores Italy’s methodologies of Blackness in relation to postcoloniality by tracing a trajectory of emergence from the field of literary fiction to current artistic practices characterised by a broader diversification of forms and media. It contends that these practices are calling postcolonial publics into existence by adopting a historically grounded and future-oriented approach. In addressing Italy’s fraught relation with coloniality and national formation, I connect the institutional and political challenges these practices are facing to some of their most significant features, such as collaboration and strategic adaptation.
