    Why are the Italians so underrated?

    Almost every culture has had an empire and a high point. The Italians had it in the ancient Roman Empire. Even without being unified for another 1200 years, the Italians were still formidable and were absolutely untouchable because of the Pope. So why does 1 war where they got invaded by the...

    What was the role of communication technology in establishing the regime in Italy and Germany in XX century?

    I'm searching for any publications that will give me the information about how was the comms tech used by Mussolini and Hitler - I know that during the Nazi rule the ministry of propaganda distributed FM receivers so the people could hear the propaganda, but I can't find any publications about...

    Unification of Italy vs Unification of Germany

    Which unification is more interesting for you? As much as I am a Prussian fanatic, I'd actually have to choose Italy based on how quickly and suddenly it happened between 1859 and 1860.

    In which historical period was Italy at its best?

    As an Italian, I'm curious to know what do you think about this. I made a mistake. I wanted to put the beginning of Late Antiquity for Italy at 300 not 330.

    When Did the Roman Ethnicity Die Out in Italy?

    Though Western Rome fell in 476 technically, the Western Romans themselves didn't just evaporate a-la Mr. Stark style. However, today, Italians are... well... Italians. The Roman ethnicity, as far as I am aware, no longer exists. So... when did it die out or become so diluted it no longer was...

    Why didn't Italy acquire the Trentino in 1866?

    In 1866, as a result of Austria's loss in the Austro-Prussian War, Italy (or Piedmont-Sardinia) was able to acquire Venice. However, Italy didn't acquire the Italian-majority Trentino until after the end of World War I. In turn, this raises a question--why didn't Italy also acquire the Trentino...

    Can you make Italy great for once?

    Italy has become the laughingstock of World War II for their performance (or lack thereof), but did they truly have to be? Imagine that you are the head of the Italian Armed Forces, promoted as early as 1922 immediately after the fascist takeover. Mussolini grants you supreme authority to...

    Does Italy's monarchy survive to the present-day if Italy remains neutral in WWII?

    Without Italian participation in World War II, would Italy's monarchy have survived to the present-day? I know that this is a bit of a random question, but I am curious about this. Indeed, without Italian entry into WWII, Mussolini's regime survives and he probably lives long enough to die a...

    Greek documents in southern Italy

    I did a dumb one and completely misplaced a pdf. There's a book from the second half of the nineteenth century, published in Italy but written in Latin, which contains lists and summaries of Greek documents in southern Italian archives. I downloaded it from Archive.org but I can't find it there...
