Jews in Italy between Integration and Assimilation, 1861–1938

The European Legacy 12 (3):337-350 (2007)

The history of Italian Jews from 1861 to 1938 is often viewed as the period in which they totally assimilated into the Italian nation. This article, however, argues that rather than their assimilation it was a period of their integration into Italian society. Various approaches to this question are presented, including a review of the literature, with a view to reconsidering the relationship between Jewish culture and Italian culture, or rather non-Jewish culture. Italian Jewish history is shown not to be separated from, but to be ?internal? to Italian social, cultural, and political history?part of the dynamic process of change that occurred during this period not only in Italy but throughout Europe
