Museo Novecento

Free admission subject to availability

In collaboration with ISRT

As part of the Ninth Cycle Fascism, Wars, Anti-Fascism, The Historical Institute of the Resistance and the Museo Novecento present three meetings dedicated to the clash between fascism and anti-fascism in the context of Europe in the thirties. The wars of the regime, the epochal conflict of the 1940s are not only pages from the past to be remembered on the occasion of more or less significant anniversaries, but essential passages of our history. The conferences will be an opportunity to reflect on the roots of our present, discussing with qualified historians and scholars and experts of the most recent historiography.
