Abstract

[automatically translated] An investigation into the Italian colonial memory by collecting life stories opens the way for a critical review that in the tradition of Italian studies is still largely to do. However in recent decades, this process is started, the image of the "Italians good people" continues to have ongoing, with a rhetorical formula that attempts to conceal the colonialist in colonizing, imperialist in civilizing. This book offers eight stories, gathered in Asmara, which tell the story colonial interweaving personal memories and filtering it through their textualization. In the dialectic between memory and identity, these stories raise questions and open up lines of thought on which it is worth to start thinking systematically.
