Seminar “The exile of democracy. Luigi Sturzo, Francesco Luigi Ferrari and the anti-fascists in France”, Italian Cultural Institute – Paris

Italian Cultural Institute, 50 rue de Varenne, PARIS

Democracy in the 1930s saw the tragic exile that led to the drama of the Second World War, also in France. Sturzo, Ferrari and the other anti-fascist exiles foresaw the inauspicious outcome of the totalitarianisms that were rising to the status of secular religions declined on a plane
national and, at the same time, social and economic.

The Study Seminar intends to address these issues, reviewing the first analyzes of Catholic exiles on the crisis of democracies and on the very exile of democracy in Europe.
