"Iom Romì" (A day in Rome) is a short film that chronicles a day in the life of the contemporary Jewish community of Rome, which for centuries has lived in limbo between persecution and integration. From dawn to dusk, through the voices of several characters living and working in the historic Ghetto quarter, "Iom Romì" tells the story of a community both fiercely independent and distinctly Roman.

Refugees, Rescue Efforts and International Politics 


Luca Fenoglio (University of Leicester), is the author of Angelo Donati e la "questione ebraica" nella Francia occupata dall'esercito italiano (2013). In this presentation he will analyze the rescue efforts orchestrated by Angelo Donati, a prominent Jewish lawyer from Modena who tried to find exit pathways for Jewish refugees caught in the Italian-occupied zone of France.
