An archive of the disappeared, Italian-and Latin America: Why memory is not lost
Roundups, summary proceedings, rapes, and violence of every kind, children torn from mothers. Eighty thousand political opponents swallowed up in a concentration camp. At least 30 thousand disappeared after torture and abuse in the Centres for illegal immigrants detention. Since 1964, the date of the coup by the military junta in Brazil in 1990, the end of the regime of Augusto Pinochet in Chile, the dictatorships of Latin america wrote the darkest pages of their history. Argentina in the head, but also Ecuador, Mexico, Uruguay: half of Latin America in which those who do not bend to the regime was cut off. And very often the families there was not even a body to bury.

Many of these are Italian families, maybe when you return home after decades of emigration: but none of them has yielded in the search of the truth, even if it has been more than fifty years.

The phenomenon of the disappeared in Latin America has been recognized as a crime against humanity by the United Nations only in the ’90s. Among these, how many are the italians, what happened, what are their stories? If it is occupying a year, a project of the Center for journalism permanent, a collective of journalists and independent active in Rome, who, after having presented the project during an event at the New Cinema Palace, in these hours, has decided to promote a fundraiser on the site to start to spread the stories that he has collected so far and continue with the other.
