Roma capitale del nazionalismo (1908-1923 – Rome capital of nationalism)

Adriano Roccucci, Archivio Guido Izzi.

Since the seventies of the twentieth century, research on fascism on a local scale has been a successful, rich in ideas and often fundamental to understand the different forms of dictatorship, from its origins to the years of consensus, in the Peninsula. Roccucci’s volume is part of this tradition, but it offers a more complex and deeper look. The nationalist movement that is the protagonist was a precursor, then a competitor, then a subordinate supporter of the most aggressive and unscrupulous fascist movement, which took the charge of violence and radical break with the liberal order, and then ended up absorbing it.
