Italian migrants began leaving the patria from the late nineteenth onwards, creating a vast, global diaspora in the process. This did not go unrecognised by the Fascist regime that tried to ‘make fascists’ out of its citizens who lived abroad, with varying degrees of success, through propaganda and institutional investment and organisations such as the Fasci italiani all’estero. Based upon recent and ongoing research, this conversation will focus upon Fascism’s relationship with Italians abroad and consider the role of violence in the process.

Claudia Baldoli teaches modern history at the University of Milan, where she arrived three years ago after a long period of teaching in the UK. She has worked on the origins of fascism in Cremona, on Italian fascism abroad, on the civilian experience of bombing in the Second World War and on the catholic left in the interwar years. Her latest book, the biography of the catholic-communist Guido Miglioli, is coming out this month with Morcelliana: Bolscevismo bianco. Guido Miglioli fra Cremona e l’Europa (1879-1954).

Matteo Pretelli is Associate Professor of North American History at the University of Napoli L’Orientale. He has conducted research and taught in Italy, USA, Great Britain and Australia. He works primarily on Italian migration, Italian fascism abroad and Italo-US relations.

Giulia Albanese is Associate Professor of Modern History and coordinator of the PhD in Historical, Geographical and Anthropological Studies at the Universities of Padua and Ca’ Foscari Venezia. Her research focuses on fascism, political violence and authoritarian cultures in the interwar years, with particular attention to the circulation and the impact of fascism in Europe, and more recently with citizenship in the same context. She is the author of Dittature mediterranee. Sovversioni fasciste e colpi di stato in Italia, Spagna, Portogallo (Laterza, 2016) and La Marcia su Roma (Laterza, 2006, new edition Routledge 2019). With Roberta Pergher she edited In the society of Fascists: Acclamation, Acquiescience and Agency in Mussolini’s Italy (Palgrave Macmillan, 2012).
