The conference aims to retrace the salient stages in the history of immigration in the city of Rome in the period between 1870 and the Second World War. Flows, paths, politics, individual and collective histories, works, specializations, paths of rootedness are interwoven with the great knots of the city's contemporary history: the proclamation of the Capital, building expansion, industrial development, the growth of institutions, the liberal season, world wars, fascism, anti-fascism, resistance.
The event takes place within the Libraries of Rome project - CNR-ISMed 150 years of immigration in Rome Capital: history, memory, territories and opens a series of meetings that will take place in the Capitoline libraries in the neighbourhood.
In June 2021 a second central conference dedicated to immigration will be held in Rome from 1945 to today.
