Criminal Colonialism

Ethiopia 1935-1941: Voyage to the shadowy heart of Italy


"Looking back on the war in Ethiopia today means having to deal with the way we are today: with the myth that is the popular saying, "the Italians are good", always useful whenever there is an aggressive foreign war; with those prejudices that exist against anyone different which are also a product of a colonial past that has never been properly criticised; with the arrogant return of patriarchal ideas and the separation of the roles of the sexes.
But if we deal with this, we must deal with it fully, seeking to understand it from the point of view of those Ethiopians, both men and women, who opposed the barbarity that called itself civility."

Speakers:

  • Mulu Ayele (Ethiopian community): Ethiopian women in the resistance to the Fascist colonialism;
  • Loredana Baglio (Corrispondenze metropolitane): Colonialism and women;
  • Nancy Aluigi Nannini (anthropologist): The colonial origin of prejudices.
