Gian Giacomo Migone, in conversation with Adam Tooze, on The United States and Fascist Italy


Date: Apr 11, 2016

Gian Giacomo Migone is Professor of History of Euroatlantic Relations at the University of Torino, Italy. He is the author of Problemi di Storia nei Rapporti tra Italia e Stati Uniti (1971) and Banchieri Americani e Mussolini (1979), and he has written numerous essays concerning Euro-Atlantic relations before, during, and after the Cold War. He was a member of the Italian Senate, where he chaired the Foreign Relations Committee, the United Nations System Staff College Advisory Board, the Civilian Affairs Committee, and the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, from 1992 to 2001. He is the founder and first editor of L’indice dei Libri del Mese, an Italian cultural monthly.

Originally published in Italian in 1980, Gli Stati Uniti e il fascismo: alle origini dell’egemonia americana in Italia, is regarded today as a crucial text on the relationship between the United States and Italy during the interwar years.
By analyzing the enduring relationship between the United States and fascist Italy up until Mussolini’s conquest of Ethiopia in 1935, this book provides answers to some key questions about the interconnectedness of America’s rise to hegemonic global financial power in the twentieth century and its support of Italian fascism during this time.

In conversation with EI Director Adam Tooze, and Molly Tambor, translator.
