The following article outlines the recent research work of Italian Germanists on Zweig’s relation to Italy as well as the connections between his oeuvre and Italian Literature. My aim is to present some common trends among the most important opinions and results from the essays examined in this field. These are characterised specifically by the reworking of questions such as the relation between art and politics, the vision of history and Zweig’s understanding of peace and pacifism. This understanding also offers interesting inputs for today’s European Union discussion about cultural identity and reshaping international boundaries.
