Guest Talk: Italy’s decision not to tear down statues, with Dr Hannes Obermair
How do we deal with preserving memory when the historical past can be so controversial? In this Patreon-only guest talk for the Coffee & Cocktails® Podcast, Dr Hannes Obermair from Eurac Research gives us his perspectives on the role of statues and how South Tyrol’s decision to preserve its Fascist (and Nazi) past led to the creation of a documentation centre located in the basement vault underneath Bozen-Bolzano, Italy’s giant monument dedicated to none other than Mussolini.
