The myth of “Italiani brava gente” (Italians are good people) was dominant in the historiography of the Fascist and Nazi periods in Italy, throughout the first few decades after the Holocaust. This course will challenge this approach, through the study of Italian Jewish history from the rise of Mussolini in 1922 and until the end of World War II. It will also include a confrontation with the question of the role of the Vatican during this period, taking advantage of the most recent studies that have been published on this difficult question.
