  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Fiume; d’Annunzio; Global Urban History; Historiography; Political Tourists.

The centenary of the Fiume adventure leads scholars to rethink the event in a broader historical and geographical perspective. This special issue aims to contribute to such renovated interest by investigating the presence of international visitors in the Adriatic city as well as by analyzing the echoes produced in the foreign press by d’Annunzio occupation. Even incomplete, the picture that emerged shows both how the d’Annunzio propaganda was able in attracting «political tourists» from around the world and how the endeavor has to be consider an event that galvanized – and also divided – the public opinion abroad and not just an Italian fact.
