Starting from an analysis of Vanessa Roghi's recent book, Piccole città, we focus on the link between historiographic writing and autobiography. In particular, it analyzes the way this link changed at the end of the twentieth century, when political categories that had determined identities, even of historians, for more than a century, have finished. Since then, issues considered "private" have emerged in the public debate and in the historiographic debate, as happened for example with drug addiction, at the centre of Roghi's book.
