Fabbriche invisibili. Storie di donne, lavoranti a domicilio
In the volume, I have analysed the industrial homework both as form of production and its historical evolution, with a particular focus on Italy. I stressed the attention on the ideology of domesticity and the effects on women's condition produced by the alliance between Fascism and Catholic church. This heritage has been cultivated by the ruling classes of the post-war period, particularly through the dispersion of the workforce. In this process, the spread of small firms and homeworkers has played a key role in the social and capital reproduction. So, homeworkers have been crucial for both the maintenance of the political consent and the increase of companies' revenues (especially textile-clothing and shoe companies).
