Fascist Racism in the Colonies: Building a Legal Discrimination

Fascist Racism in the Colonies:  Building a Legal Discrimination
Francis Scott Key, 2120
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM

Join the Miller Center for a lunch talk with Lucia Ceci.

Lucia Ceci is Professor of Contemporary History at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" and Director of the Roman Center for Jewish Studies. She has publish monographs and many articles on the relationships between the Catholic Church and politics. Her most recent volumes are: II Papa non deve parlare. Chiesa, fascismo e guerra d'Etiopia (Laterza 2010, Pirovano Book Prize), The Vatican and Mussolini's Italy (Brill, 2016, Friuli Book Prize for Contemporary History.)   
 
On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the introduction of the anti-Jewish laws in Italy, the talk examines the first racist laws which Fascist Government introduced in the colonies after the conquest of Ethiopia (1935-1936), when Mussolini planned to build an Italian Empire that was homogeneous from the biological and cultural point of view. The analysis focuses first on the legal debate about the introduction of the racist discrimination into the legal system, and then clarifies the specific nature of national policies against interracial sexual relationships.
