ITALIAN LIFE UNDER FASCISM: Selections from the Fry Collection

Informazioni per i Turisti. Rome, 1 April 1937.

Despite sanctions imposed by the League of Nations after the invasion of Abyssinia, Italy continued to attract foreign visitors. “Information” for tourists printed in Italian, French, English, and German features “civilizing” work in the Italian colonies, as well as cultural life in Italy proper, from museums to night clubs and film to greyhound racing, from railroad and airplane schedules to the hours of religious services. This publication also announces a concert conducted by the German Jew Bruno Walter, no longer permitted to perform in his own country.
