Carlo Ginzburg

> Published on : 19.05.2015

Carlo Ginzburg, a historian by training, is internationally known for several reasons. A prominent representative of micro-history, he is also an ardent intellectual who does not hesitate to engage on both scientific and political fronts. Not only does his research feed on testimony, for him it is an actual lived historical experience, the imprint of the persecution of his own family under fascism. Under this dual profile, the interview introduces you to one of the great founders of the reflection on memory and history, and also on testimony as a pivot point between the epistemological and social spheres.
