The article examines American fiction in Italian big magazines during the 1930s both in quantitative and qualitative terms, focusing on networks of circulation, production and reception. Analyzing not only American high modernism but also middlebrow and genre fiction, the article demonstrates how American litera- ture in weekly publications conflicted with traditional cultural values and Fascist monitoring and censoring, and how it was instrumental to Italian social and cultural modernity.
