This annual lecture series is named in honor of the Italian
anti-fascist historian Gaetano Salvemini, who spent much of his career
as a professor in the Harvard department of history. This event is
co-sponsored with the Consulate General of Italy in Boston and aims to
foster a spirit of intellectual inquiry into Italian history within the
Harvard community and beyond.
