Managing the racism: the persecution of the Jews in Italy
The article presents a historical review of the promulgation of anti-Semitic laws in fascist Italy and of the motivations of the government to apply them. Why does a fascist regime become anti-Semitic? The persecution of the Italian Jews was one of the inner components of the totalitarian logic. The essay is divided into several segments, each addressing a specific aspect of the racial persecution between 1938 and 1945. The last one covers the immediate Postwar period.
