Conversazioni Interdisciplinari: “Rome and the physical legacies of Fascism”

Rome is the city of the Popes, but it was once also the city of the Fascists. Mussolini’s regime left a considerable mark on the city in the form of architecture, monuments, and large urban projects. Since the fall of Fascism at end of the Second World War, Romans have faced the question of what to do with the physical traces of the regime, and whether to preserve, demolish, alter, or renovate its buildings and monuments. Fascist sites represent a difficult heritage that elicits divisive and painful memories, but which is also too important to be ignored.

This conference aims to put these theories in direct conversation with one another, and consequently move towards finding a resolution to the origins of Roman public space.…
