This panel seeks papers that address the disruptive role of clothes along with the possibility they provide the individual or a group to challenge a super-imposed set of rules and to create discontinuity within their community.

fascismi" at the Political Science Department of LUISS 'Guido Carli' in Rome (Viale Romania 32, Rome - Aula 411) since 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
Original – Copy – Forgery
Since the artistic production of artefacts, copies have also been made – for representative, dynastic, political or purely decorative purposes. The numerous imperial busts put up in the Roman provinces were important for the power preservation of the Roman Empire. While through copies of Greek busts and sculptures, which were well liked with the Roman patricians, antique Greek artworks that would otherwise be lost have outlasted till today.
The 1935 song “Faccetta Nera,” a paean to the Fascist imperialist enterprise in Africa, addresses the “little black face” that is the anonymous Abyssinian woman, an object of Italian colonial desire. This jaunty march with its suggestive miscegenation proclaims a gendered liberation of African women with the line “our law is slavery of love” (la legge nostra è schiavitù d’amore). The song was made famous by tenor Carlo Buti and eventually became a stable of festa band repertoires among the diaspora.
