A Century of Fascism? Third Lecture on Fascism

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOther eventSocietal


In 1932 Mussolini predicted the 20th century would be ‘un secolo fascista’, a ‘fascist century’. However, the Axis Powers were defeated in 1945 and attempts to revive his movement have failed. March 2019 marks the centenary of the formation of the first Fascio in Milan, and is an ideal moment to assess just how badly Mussolini misjudged how politics would evolve in the future, or was he?

The Lecture on Fascism is organised every two years by the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies and 'Fascism. Journal of Comparative Fascist Studies' (Brill), to mark the first issue of a volume and to involve the scholarly and general public. The lecture is delivered by a member of the editorial board of the Fascism journal.
