‘Il tempo e la storia: Italiani in Etiopia’ (Time and history: Italians in Ethiopia)

(ID Teca: X000016487)

Broadcast on the general interest channel Rai 3 and on the theme-based channel  Rai Storia on 2nd February 2017, this episode of “Time and history” shows the utility of the television formula that allows the historian to comment a movie in studio, thus combining the informative and emotional power of the images  and the depth offered by the arguments of the specialist (in this case, the historian Nicola Labanca). The extract in question, on the colonization following the conquest of Ethiopia, mentions among other things a long-hidden event in Italy, namely the massacre of Debra Libanos perpetrated by the Italian army in 1937.
