Санкт-Петербург как ‘общественное зрелище’ в мемуарном дискурсе об эпохе Великих реформ

Raffaella Vassena


Based on the premise, shared by many academics, that the city represents one of the most important places in which we implement the strategies to build and transmit the collective memory of an era, the author examines the characteristics of St. Petersburg in the memoirs related to the early sixties of the nineteenth century. In particular, the author focuses on the characterization of the public space of St. Petersburg as a ‘social stage’, and on the role that visual experience plays in the process of representing this space and of communicating its symbolic meaning to posterity.
