Doctoral lesson by Francesco Ragno (University of Bologna) and Vincenzo Pedace (University of Salerno)

Latin America was one of the central grounds in the context of the Cold War. Radical changes occurred across the continent from the end of the Second World War to the end of the 1980s. Revolutions, coups and democratic governments alternated without stopping for forty years providing military, cultural, political and intellectual instruments to the global actors of the Cold War; in particular, the Cuban Revolution of 1959 became for many a symbol and example to be inspired by to legitimize revolutionary and counter-revolutionary actions in different parts of the world. The doctoral lesson on the historiography of the Cold War in Latin America and the presentation of the new book by Loris Zanatta on Fidel Castro will therefore serve to propose new readings and interpretations of these years and its protagonists.

Presentazione del libro: Magellano e Don Bosco intorno al mondo, la memoria dei luoghi di Nicola Bottiglieri. Ne discute con l’autore: Rosa Maria Grillo, direttrice del dipartimento di Studi Umanistici

The nineteenth century was the century of revolutions and counter-revolutions, of their dialectical relationship and their tensions. Both phenomena, whose size reached global proportions, played a fundamental role in the origins of the contemporary world, in the midst of constitutional projects and monarchical restorations, as well as for the continuous renewal of their traditional material and ideological attitude, which mobilized armies and political communities, favouring the circulation of men and generating an impressive amount of testimonies and memories.
The seminar proposal fits into the corpus of international historiographic trends of recent years, such as Atlantic Studies, studies on the Nation Building and Intellectual History, which are analyzing, from different perspectives, the politicization methods and civil conflicts of the nineteenth century, as well as monarchical institutions and various counter-revolutionary ideologies, currents and practices in Europe and America. At the same time, it deepens the transnational character of the restorations, as preparatory spaces for the identification of a space of intense circulation and connection between the states of the Bourbons of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic empires.
The transatlantic dynamic of revolutions and counter-revolutions implied the mobilization of men, women, materiality and ideas, through which the respective political ideologies were conveyed. The aim of this seminar is to deepen the way in which exiles from both the “new” and “old” world built, in addition to political and military networks, complex representations and interpretations networks, which contributed to the creation of communities and institutions. These studies still offer the opportunity to deconstruct myths, at the same time to bring out new and rich elements, as well as new questions concerning political, institutional and cultural historiography, while opening a profitable space for research innovation.

22/04/20-Addressing Authority. Petitions in the Mediterranean world during the first decades of the 19th century

Biblioteca Studi letterari e linguistici, Università degli studi di Salerno Campus di Fisciano, Edificio D3, Terzo piano

The aim of the conference is to compare the ongoing research and historiographical perspectives on political communication between government and the governed in the Mediterranean area in the first half of the 19th century. Petitions represent a privileged point of view to reconstruct the power relations, the mechanisms of political negotiation and mediation, the conceptions of sovereignty and the different aspects of social conflicts that have defined historical processes of different places and times. The use of petitions as a historical source lets us to formulate innovative interpretative proposals on revolution and counter-revolution, exile and political participation, ideas of citizenship and construction of the public sphere in the Mediterranean world of the first decades of the 19th century, where political ideas were discussed and new social practices imagined. The aim of this conference is to compare current studies and test the different developing researches on the subject, to draw an initial balance and propose new developments and initiatives.

From Lenin to Stalin: the birth of the totalitarian regime in the URSS

Rimandato a data da definirsi
Postponed to a date to be define

Ettore Cinnella

Ettore Cinnella, one of the greatest Italian Soviet scientists, already a professor at the University of Pisa, spent many years in the central archive of the Communist Party in Moscow reconstructing and analyzing the role of all the political and social protagonists of the time. In his book “1917. Russia towards the abyss ”(Della Porta publisher), Cinnella explained why Bolshevism, which was one of the main forces that opposed the tsarist regime, would gradually turn into a ferocious military tyranny capable of sinking the political and social legacy of the Russian Revolution. And it gives its own interpretation of that epochal turning point by tracing a balance of the most debated revolution in history.

From today everyone is more free”. This was the title of the Avanti! December 6, 1963, the day of the oath of the Moro-Nenni executive, the first government of the so-called organic center-left.

Pietro Nenni, one of the main protagonists of this operation, which underlined the intention
