It examines the Florentine country from its mountainous outer edge, the place Florence met its so much strenuous competition to territorial incorporation. From a tributary kingdom, which handled its surrounding geographical region as little greater than a tax reservoir and a buffer opposed to international invaders, Florence started to see its personal self-interest as intertwined with that of its area and its rural subjects--a switch caused through common and profitable peasant uprisings, hitherto unrecorded via historians.

Example text

San Miniato’s complicated and ever-growing memoryscapes reflected local unease about what had happened in 1944, and why. The council took the 2002 commission’s report at its word, and decided to dedicate a second, “correcting” plaque to the events of 1944. The delicate issue of the wording of the new plaque was handed over to the expresident of Italy, Oscar Luigi Scalfaro. In February 2007, he came up with this version: 28 ITALY’S DIVIDED MEMORY MORE THAN 60 YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THE TERRIFYING MASSACRE OF 22 JULY 1944 WHICH WAS ATTRIBUTED TO THE GERMANS.

By the end of that year, most traces of this attempt to create an alternative memory and narrative of the war, in terms of public memory at least, had been forcibly excised from the landscape. In Biella, at least, the fascists had won the monument war. Often the proposed plaques preached class and civil war, and violent revolution. One text, written by maximalist leader Ercole Bucco, was banned by the Prefect in the Province of Mantua. It attacked those who “bless and WORLD WAR I 41 exult” war—and was thus also a critique of other forms of memorialization.

Victims of other countries were also—implicitly—included in the call to commemorate “all victims” of the war. Thus, this alternative view of the past formed a critique of official (and later fascist) narratives in terms of who fought, who died, and why. The power of the pacifist-socialist interpretation of the war can also be gauged in various ways. In Milan, antiwar feeling was high both during (in 1917 antiwar riots raged through the city) and after the conflict. Moreover, the left often attacked patriotic events, such as the award of medals.
