Learning objectives

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.

Prerequisites and basic notions

No prerequisites are required,


Fascisms, anti-fascisms and resistance between Europe and the Americas.
The course aims to outline the origins and characteristics of the various phenomena of opposition to totalitarian regimes that in the interwar years emerged on a European scale and expanded in various geographical areas, taking on a transnational dimension.
In order to analyze this phenomenon, it will be necessary as a priority to define the characteristics of European totalitarian regimes and the processes underlying their establishment. Fundamental step in this path of research of the historical and cultural origins of fascism and Nazism is represented by the Great War and the processes of transformation of European societies triggered by it; processes that are manifested in their full extent in the first postwar period that will be addressed in the first block of six lectures.
The central part of the course will be devoted to the analysis of Italian Fascism, whose evolution and parable will be set against the background of European history of the period 1900-1945 and placed in relation to the story of German National Socialism. Particular attention will be paid to issues related to the relationship between fascism and culture and the influence that the Mussolini regime exerted in various European and non-European contexts.
The last block of lectures will focus on the study of antifascism, the origins of which will be reconstructed from the earliest experiences of "cultural" opposition to the fascist regime and subsequent developments. This course of analysis will highlight some certain elements that had a decisive weight in the experience of antifascism such as the generational question and the existence of different political and cultural components of antifascism. They will then examine the individual paths of some prominent personalities of Italian antifascism, the places and workshops of antifascism connected to the experience of exile. In closing, after addressing the question of European resistance, they will dwell on the Italian resistance and the question of the construction of the new democracy after 1945.
At the end of the course, the student should be able to achieve a high degree of knowledge regarding: 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 historiographical interpretations related to these processes.

13. Generations and families of Italian antifascism.
14. Paths and figures: Leone Ginzburg, Vittorio Foa and Gaetano Salvemini.
15. Laboratories of antifascism: Paris, New York, Mexico City, Buenos Aires.
16. The exile of Italian antifascism in the United States.
17. European Resistances and the new democracy.

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!
