Informations and abstract

Keywords: Racism, Nationalism, Fascism, Etruscans

This article aims at studying the political biography of an important Italian archaeologist, Massimo Pallottino (1909-1995), as a source for the intellectual history of Fascist racism, its entanglements with ancient history and its continuities in post-war Italy. It particularly traces the role of Massimo Pallottino in the «national-racist» Fascist faction as an Etruscologist and cultural organizer, as well as the birth of his theory on the ethnic «formation» of the ancient Etruscans, and his post-fascist memorialization of racism
