Ancient Rome – in the full range of its historical experience, from the Regal period to the demise of the Empire in the West – has long been an inexhaustible repository of models, with which posterity has engaged over the centuries. This dialogue between Ancient and Modern took up a highly significant political and cultural dimension under Fascism. The investigation of these themes has been an increasingly prominent theme in the historiographical debates of the last few decades, which have explored the relationship between Romanità and Fascism from a number of original and fruitful viewpoints. This conference on ‘New Work on Fascism and Ancient Rome’ aims to provide a balance sheet of the main outcomes attained thus far and the most recent and productive approaches to this topic.
