University of Padua Department of Biomedical Sciences organizes the book presentation of Nell’azione per l’azione. Massimiliano Aloisi nella Resistenza romana (1939-1945), written by Ernesto Damiani and Pompeo Volpe.

The professor of General Pathology, Massimiliano Aloisi (1907-1999), began teaching at the University of Padua in 1959 and was a leading figure of the scientific, cultural and political panorama over the second half of the last century. The authors investigate his activity in the Italian Resistance and the Italian Communist Party in Rome by giving a voice to the bibliographic, literary, and archival resources.  The autobiographical notes published in 1987 include a generic anti-fascist sentiment towards the complete political developments that progressed from 1937 to 1939.  Delving into his stays in Berlin and London, the book describes the combativeness of the Partisan movement and the aftermath of Italy’s surrender to the Allies on September 8, 1943.

Director Giovanni Silvano of the Interdepartmental Center for the History of Medicine introduces and moderates the event and welcomes Mario Isnenghi, Alberto Semi, Ernesto Carafoli e Gian Antonio Danieli. to speak following the institutional greetings.

The event is available also online: Zoom meeting.
