myth religion ideology
The project analyzes the position of religion, Christian and pagan, in Italian fascism, more specifically in the so-called 'romanità' or 'Romanness'. This myth was one of the cornerstones of fascism. The analysis of the position of religion is situated in the idea of fascism as a form of modern, political religion.
