The Collection constitutes an inimitable documentary corpus for understanding the formation process of totalitarian regimes, the mechanisms of creation and development of visual material and the life conditions in Italian society. It is a unique source for information about Italy in the years of the fascist regime, about the international context of fascism (including East Africa and Albania, but also well beyond the areas occupied by Italy during fascism, especially as regards the period of the Second World War) and about mass society in the 1920s and 1930s.
