Bibliographic Information on Contemporary Italian History

Online Database of Bibliographic Information since 1999

The Bibliographic Information on Contemporary Italian History is one of the services the German Historical Institute (DHI) in Rome offers the international scientific community. It comprises new Italian publications on 19th, 20th and 21st century history. Founded by Jens Petersen in 1974 and distributed in print format by the Gruppo di studio per la storia contemporanea italiana – Arbeitsgemeinschaft für die neueste Geschichte Italiens, since 1999 it has been edited by Lutz Klinkhammer and Gerhard Kuck, Eva Grassi and Susanne Wesely. As of that year, new publications – around 2,500 monographs annually – are collected in a relational database which offers straightforward and extensive research possibilities, accessible on the Institute website.
