Abstract

In March 2014, the e-mail&#xD;list of the European Academic Network on Romani&#xD;Studies1 hosted a discussion on definitions of the population known as ‘Roma’.&#xD;It began when one of the subscribers to the list – which at the time brought&#xD;together some 350 academics who specialised in Romani/Gypsy studies – asked&#xD;for reactions to two generalisations which she came across while preparing a&#xD;legal review of a document on cultural rights: (1) that all Roma speak a variety&#xD;of the same language, Romanes; and (2) that Roma generally consider themselves&#xD;to be a nation. Some two-dozen&#xD;scholars posted their reactions, which&#xD;together offer a fairly exhaustive summary of contemporary views on the subject

Abstract

Le borgate nate in epoca fascista rappresentano una pagina fondamentale della storia di Roma contemporanea. Additate come i luoghi più malfamati della città, specchio dei suoi contrasti socio-economici e urbanistici, in esse può riassumersi il modo disordinato in cui la capitale è cresciuta e si è sviluppata. Avamposti dell’espansione edilizia del secondo dopoguerra, le borgate hanno costituito il luogo d’approdo per migliaia di famiglie dalle molteplici provenienze. Argomento fino a oggi poco dissodato, il processo di popolamento della periferia romana è affrontato in questo libro per mezzo di nuove fonti archivistiche, con cui è stato possibile verificare ipotesi di studio di recente acquisizione. Sullo sfondo, la storia del più importante Istituto di case popolari italiano svoltasi durante il ventennio, un periodo nel quale l’ente, fiancheggiatore delle politiche urbanistiche e abitative del fascismo per la capitale e, seppur a fasi alterne, organo edilizio del Governatorato, fu impegnato nella costruzione di intere parti di città e in quella di un vasto esperimento pedagogico di educazione fascista nei suoi caseggiati, contribuendo anch’esso all’instaurazione di un sistema dalle caratteristiche totalitarie.

Abstract

En les pàgines d’aquest llibre s’hi agrupen alguns dels aspectes de la medicina a Roma prenent com a referència les fonts arqueològiques, epigràfiques i literàries. També hi trobem, en alguns casos, una nova visió d’aquests temes que s’aparta de l’androcentrisme que ha estat present en els estudis de la història, la literatura i l’arqueologia clàssica des de fa molts segles. Aquest fet ens permet tenir una percepció més completa d’una de les peces que componen el món grecoromà.

Abstract

Fins no fa gaire, es veia el món clàssic des d’una mirada androcèntrica, en què el paper de la dona quedava molt desvirtuat. Afortunadament, cada vegada són més els estudis que intenten demostrar que, si bé la dona no va gaudir a Grècia i a Roma dels mateixos privilegis que els homes, el seu paper en aquestes societats va ser bastant més rellevant que el que ens transmeten alguns autors clàssics. Per què es creen unes determinades històries mítiques? Quins eren els rols i els espais de les dones? En quin moment de la història grega i romana van passar de l’oíkos, espai privat, a la polis, espai públic? Aquestes i altres preguntes troben resposta en el volum que ara teniu a les mans. Les i els investigadors ens endinsen en aquest món clàssic que, tot i estar molt allunyat cronològicament, ens és molt proper a causa de la pervivència d’una ideologia i d’un poder patriarcal que ens ha quedat com a llegat.Aquest llibre ens ajuda a comprendre el món actual, ens fa paleses les nostres arrels culturals i ens dóna una mirada diferent sobre les dones del món grec i romà que esperem que ajudi a retirar el vel d’incertesa i mite amb què durant molts anys han estat embolcallades.

Abstract

Romani political mobilisation is now an established part of the civil society landscape&#xD;across Europe. It has given rise to various forms of political participation,&#xD;with Romani NGOs taking up consultative roles in a number of countries, as&#xD;well as in inter-governmental&#xD;organisations. Models of direct political representation&#xD;of Roma through a kind of quota system exist at the level of local government&#xD;in Hungary and in the national elections in Romania, and a number of&#xD;parliamentarians of Romani background have held direct mandates in national&#xD;legislatives and in the European Parliament

Abstract

Thirty years passed before it was accepted, in West Germany and elsewhere, that the Roma (Germany's Gypsies) had been Holocaust victims. And, similarly, it took thirty years for the West German state to admit that the sterilisation of Roma had been part of the 'Final Solution'.Drawing on a substantial body of previously unseen sources, this book examines the history of the struggle of Roma for recognition as racially persecuted victims of National Socialism in post-war Germany.Since modern academics belatedly began to take an interest in them, the Roma have been described as 'forgotten victims'.This book looks at the period in West Germany between the end of the War and the beginning of the Roma civil rights movement in the early 1980s, during which the Roma were largely passed over when it came to compensation. The complex reasons for this are at the heart of this book.

Abstract

Spesso poco note, talvolta ancora inedite, le testimonianze di pittura rupestre medievale del Lazio e della Campania settentrionale sono numerose, come dimostrano le quarantadue schede del catalogo, corrispondenti ai monumenti presi in esame. L’ampio raggio di indagine ha permesso di enucleare due differenti tipologie di ambienti: la cavità artificiale, in corrispondenza del substrato tufaceo, utilizzata il più delle volte per esigenze funzionali, e la grotta naturale, fin dalla preistoria associata all’universo del sacro. Particolare attenzione è stata rivolta ai fenomeni religiosi che hanno concorso allo sviluppo dei santuari, quali la devozione all’arcangelo Michele, l’eremitismo e la venerazione delle reliquie. Queste ultime sono la causa della sopravvivenza dei santuari ubicati all’interno delle catacombe, luoghi di culto che molto hanno in comune con l’universo rupestre. Quanto alle tematiche di ambito artistico, il ricco corpus di dipinti ha consentito di soffermarsi sul dialogo fra roccia e immagine, sui diversi contesti della produzione pittorica campano-laziale fra VI e XIII secolo, sui problemi conservativi.

Abstract

The main issues arising from the encounter between Roma people and surrounding European society since the time of their arrival in Medieval Europe until today are discussed in this work. The history of their persecution and genocide during the Nazi era, in particular, is central to the present volume. Significantly, some authors sought to emphasize the continuing history of prejudice and persecution, which reached a peak during the Nazi era and persisted after the war. Current questions of so...

Abstract

The book presents the catalogue of Hispanic doctors in Civil and Canon Law graduated at the University of La Sapienza in Rome from 1549 to 1774. It also includes a list of Portuguese graduates. In La Sapienza, contrary to what has been maintained by many scholars, hundreds of foreign students received their doctorate degrees in Civil and Canon Law. The book, after a presentation of the College of Consistorial Lawyers and the Professors of the Faculty of Civil and Canon Law, emphasizes the international character of the doctoral students and focuses on Spaniards. Decisive contributions can be made going through the list of graduates, supervisors, examiners and witnesses, not only to the identification of Hispanic civilists and canonists, but also to the study of the academic, cultural and political networks, woven in Rome during the Modern Era.--------El libro presenta la nómina de doctores hispanos en leyes y cánones en la Universidad de La Sapienza de Roma desde 1549 hasta 1774. Se incluye asimismo una nómina de graduados portugueses. En La Sapienza, contrariamente a lo que se ha sostenido mayoritariamente, se doctoraron en ambos derechos centenares de estudiantes extranjeros. El libro, tras una presentación del Colegio de Abogados Consistoriales y de los profesores de la Facultad de Leyes y Cánones, enfatiza el carácter internacional de los doctorandos y se centra en los hispanos. A través del elenco de graduados, promotores, examinadores y testigos se puede contribuir decisivamente no sólo a la identificación de legistas y canonistas hispanos, sino también al estudio de las redes académicas, culturales y políticas que se tejieron en Roma durante la época moderna.
