Università di Salerno
Università di Palermo
The seminar is part of a long-term research, from the French Revolution to the present day, aimed at reconstructing and interpreting the role and meaning of the “victims of the nation”. In this case we want to present a research on the victims of mafia with the aim of analyzing the image of the victim, the role within the national rhetoric, the political and civil use and the impact on the community.
