‘Passato e presente. I giovani e la marcia su Roma’ (Past and present. The youth and the march on Rome) – 1st video

(ID Teca: X000096648)

In these two excerpts from the episode of “Passato e Presente” broadcast on 28th of April 2022 on Rai Tre and Rai Storia, the footages illustrate the relationship between young people and fascism in the context of its “power takeover”: a theme later analysed in the studio by the historian Marco Mondini with presenter Paolo Mieli and the participation of the young historian Alessandro Ambrosino, focusing on the existential reasons behind the involvement of young people in fascism. This is a theme that somehow echoes Montanelli’s above-mentioned testimony in his insistence on the pre-political nature of youth involvement too.
