From Romanzo Criminale to Suburra, books (and films or TV series) that have put the Italian capital at the centre of the crime fiction map.

Our series dedicated to the genre of gialli takes us through various Italian cities, from North to South, from the mainland to the islands. This time we go to Rome with our tour guide in this "Italian journey", Dr Barbara Pezzotti.

Gialli are Italian crime fiction books. The name comes from the covers of a popular Italian series of crime fiction stories launched by publisher Mondadori in 1929, which were yellow (in Italian: giallo).

Barbara Pezzotti is a Monash University lecturer and the author of the book The Importance of Place in Contemporary Italian Crime Fiction: A Bloody Journey, published by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press in 2012.
