Il cinema didattico di Roberto Omegna tra propaganda fascista e divulgazione scientifica

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The following paper is about the scientific and educational movies produced by Roberto Omegna for the “Istituto Luce” during the fascist period. Through the analysis of the Omegna’s documentaries two different perspectives are revealed: the positivistic view of the scientist and the ideologist view of the fascist regime that tried to manipulate the scientific films in support of its political propaganda. Omegna was the pioneer of a pedagogy that wanted to convey in the new generations the importance of scientific progress.
