The Constantine Maria Panunzio papers contain significant materials relating to the Mussolini dictatorship in Italy and the
aftermath of fascist rule in the country at the end of World War II. As a sociologist whose primary research focus was on
the immigrant experience in the United States, Panunzio also retained a keen interest in political developments in his native
Italy. This interest is reflected in the papers, which are almost exclusively concerned with the subject of Italian fascism.
The papers include Panunzio's speeches and writings on Italian politics during the Mussolini period, as well as an extensive
subject file on Italian fascism compiled by Panunzio. There are also other research materials on the same subject in the papers,
and these include a large amount of clippings and excerpts from monographs. Additionally, the collection contains a considerable
number of writings on fascist Italy by other authors.
