Presentation

What is the relationship between the Alps and the Resistence during the Italian Social Republic? Around this question we want to deepen the function of the Alps as a “centre” of battles, violences and opposition to fascism, as well as the cradle of political debate destined to forge the modern Italian and European democracy.

We invite submissions from scholars who work on the phenomenon of violences, exile and refugees during the Italian Social Republic (1943-1945).

  • We are interested in articles that discuss the role of the Alps as a centre of violences, battles and resistance, focusing on their geo-political, military and economic role.
  • We are, of course, also interested in manuscripts that deal with the Alps as a refuge and escape place, with particular attention to the role of Switzerland in accepting and rejecting italian political and racial refugees.
  • We hope to receive papers that deal with the Alps - barrier and connection between Italy and Switzerland - as laboratory of democratic discussion for new institutional forms, such as regional autonomies and federalism. 
  • We welcome contributions, but not exclusively, on:
  • Violence and resistance on the Alps: fascists and partisans
  • Live the war on the border: the alpine communities
  • Escaping Salò violences: smugglers, passeurs and Jews
  • Women on the Alps: social, economic and political relations
  • The Italian emigration in Switzerland, the resistance and the forge of a new Europe
  • Americans, allied prisoners and the Italian resistance: the role of the Alps
  • Debating the future of the Alps: the “Declaration of representatives of alpine populations”
  • These are just some of the guidelines that do not however preclude the possibility of hosting further thematic contributions.
