Salvemini was an imperative force who left a permanent mark on Italian politics and historiography.
He was among the first and most effective opponents of Fascism.
Salvemini offered significant leadership to political refugees in the United States. His prolific writings shaped the attitudes of U.S. policymakers during and after the Second World War. His transatlantic exile experience endowed him with new insights and a fresh perspective to explain the rise of fascism, while shaping the memory of the war and political life in Italy after 1945.
We asked five philosophers and historians – Sergio Bucchi, Mimmo Franzinelli, Gian Giacomo Migone, Pier Paolo Portinaro, Massimo Salvadori e Maddalena Tirabassi – to explain us every different aspect of his thought.
