The conference is dedicated to the theme of Russian Rome in the aftermath of the October Revolution: the period between 1917 and 1922 represents, in fact, a particular moment in the life of the Roman Russian colony. The streets of the eternal city breathe the air of Russia: it is not only the presence of Russians in Rome, but the short ‘flowering’ of a ‘Russian Rome’. Right in the center, in an area of a few blocks, the eternal city houses a Russian circle, a rescue committee for Russian refugees, two Russian taverns, a tearoom, two Russian theaters, a Russian library. Conference si held by Bianca Sulpasso, professor of russian literature at University “Tor Vergata” in Rome. Automatic english subtitles available.
