This thesis aims to reconstruct, through the analysis of the 1946 volume of the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, the influence exerted by the studies of Warburg tradition on Italian culture of the forties and fillies. The volume in fact, having been entirely written by Italian intellectuals, is not only a precious example of the revival of international collaboration immediately after the war, but also a significant cross-section of the Italian cultural life during the forties. The study of the essays collected in the volume along with extensive archival research on the relationship between the authors and the scholars of the Warburg Institute, led to an important conclusion. The Italian intellectuals who sought to oppose Benedetto Croce's dominant aesthetic theories, looked at the work of Aby Warburg and his circle with great interest, seeing in it an important example of a new historical and multidisciplinary method.
