The study is the first interdisciplinary investigation into fashion journalism under the fascist regime and in the post-war period (1922-1960), a crucial time for Italy and the worldwide consolidation of its fashion industry. Firmly grounded in the semiological method applied by Roland Barthes to fashion language, as well as in fashion and journalism studies, it breaks new ground by using the study of emotions as a tool to analyse fashion writing and give new insights into models of femininity and experiences of fashion, also providing entirely new understanding of Gianna Manzini, a key fashion journalist and novelist of twentieth century Italy.
