Spanish flu ended a century ago: references in historiography and art (2019)


Spanish flu worldwide appeared for the first time between 1918 and 1919 and Italy has definitely been one of the most heavily affected country. It exactly ended a century ago causing the death of at least 50 million of people according to some authors. Our attention is particularly addressed to the world of art and historiography and to all those works in which a connection with this biological tragedy can be found; the production of books concerning this specific issue has considerably multiplied in the last two decades.
