Abstract

The Cineguf and the Memory of Fascism (1944-1976) wants to get deeper into the complex metabolisation of the traces of the fascist past, for some of the protagonists of the Cineguf era. The article discusses the way some Cineguf members elaborated upon their own experience into the Cineguf groups - a fascist association of amateur film clubs - and how the social and generational developments regarding the film culture impacted onto this cultural and political metabolisation, in post-war Italy. The article proposes to question the various forms of "silence" that characterizes the archival survival of the films produced by the Cineguf and the narratives of the history of the Cineguf as well.
