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.
