Learning outcomes

Analysis and understanding of complex historical processes over time (including the analysis of shorter historical times in a long-term perspective) and in space (by linking the national history with the European and international ones), capturing the complexity and articulation of historical events, while being able to identify the most significant causal nodes.


Italian Fascism: Origins, Transformations and Legacy

The course aims to provide a complete overview of the history of Italian Fascism, starting from the question of its origins and arriving at the concluding stages of its twenty-year-long history. The history of Mussolini's regime is set against the background of the European history of the period 1900-1950, which is examined with attention to its political, diplomatic and cultural aspects.
The program of the course is structured around four blocks of lessons corresponding to as many crucial phases for understanding the origins, transformations and characteristics of the Fascist regime. The final part of the course is dedicated to a historiographical assessment of fascism and to the question of the continuity of Fascism in Italian and European history with a final reflection focused on the debate around modern populism.
Particular attention is given to the relationship between fascism and culture in all its manifestations (art, cinema, literature) and to the influence that Mussolini's regime exerted in various European and non-European contexts.
At the end of the course the student will be able to reach a high level of knowledge about: a) the periodizations of the historical events considered, b) the events that characterize the different historical phases examined, c) the different historical processes that authoritarian and totalitarian regimes have generated, d) the historiographic interpretations of these processes.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
