Storia dello Sport. Rivista di Studi Contemporanei 2023-03-27T08:03:32+00:00 Redazione Open Journal Systems <p>In collaborazione con studiosi provenienti da alcune prestigiose università italiane e straniere si è voluto lanciare una nuova rivista dedicata alla storia dello sport. Sotto la direzione scientifica di Francesco Bonini, Rettore della Lumsa, Patrizia Dogliani, professore ordinario di Storia Contemporanea presso l’Università di Bologna, Sergio Giuntini, direttore scientifico della Società italiana di storia dello sport e sotto la direzione giornalistica di Dario Ricci, Radio24, «Storia dello Sport. Rivista di Storia Contemporanea» si propone di riempire uno spazio ancora assente nel nostro paese. Essa vuole creare uno spazio che permetta a tutti gli studiosi della materia di poter confrontarsi attraverso la pubblicazione di saggi, rassegne e recensioni. La rivista, però, non avrà solo una dimensione nazionale, avendo l’ambizione di superare i nostri confini. Attraverso le sue pagine verrà data l’opportunità a ricercatori stranieri di poter scrivere anche in idiomi quali: inglese, francese, spagnolo e portoghese. Per questo motivo, sia la redazione che il consiglio scientifico, che il comitato dei referee, sono formati da un corposo numero di studiosi proveniente da diverse istituzioni universitarie europee. </p> Andrea Bacci, Lo sport nella propaganda fascista 2023-03-23T09:10:18+00:00 Felice Fabrizio 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Felice Fabrizio Enrico Landoni, Gli atleti del Duce.

Less investigated, however, have been the consequences of this process on the lives and careers of the athletes from these areas, and especially the Istrian footballers of Slavic or Germanic origin who were great protagonists in the Serie A of the Ventennio. While some agreed to Italianise their surnames, others decided to keep their original form and had to face the consequences of their choice. Among them were Rodolfo Ostroman and Bruno Scher, on whose sporting events this contribution focuses.</p> 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Edoardo Molinelli Bologna come epicentro e laboratorio dello sport fascista 2023-03-21T10:54:26+00:00 Pierfrancesco Trocchi <p>In a broader perspective of understanding the fascist sport, the article aims to analyse its dynamics in the context of the city of Bologna during the Ventennio. We will see how Bologna tried to establish itself as the Italian “Capital of sport”, thanks mainly to the reorganizational and creative efforts of the hierarch Leandro Arpinati. In order to do this, we will look at articles published in «Il Comune di Bologna» (1924-1939), the Municipal magazine of the city. The analysis of Bolognese events will show how the sporting fortunes of the city were closely linked to the political fortunes of Arpinati, who implemented and maximized the dynamics of national sport in Emilia. In fact, he was able to both live by the spectacularization advocated by the Regime thanks to a monumental arena such as the "Littoriale" - with Bologna FC as its main mascot – as well as pursue the massifying aims of the dictatorship by constantly involving schools and local groups in educational physical activities. Finally, the creation of the Institute for Sports Medicine satisfied the Fascists’ desire to provide sport with a medical legitimacy according to “hygienist” doctrines. Lastly, it will be seen how the interest of the mayors of Bologna in sporting activities both diminished and changed after 1933, the year of Arpinati's fall from grace. The aim of this paper is to outline Fascism’s attempt to make Bologna not only "la Dotta" (“the Learned”) but also "la Sportiva", an attempt which only partially succeeded under Arpinati's influence.</p> 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Pierfrancesco Trocchi “Benedetta gente, questi piemontesi!” 2023-03-21T12:45:54+00:00 Onofrio Bellifemine <p>Between 1930 and 1935 Juventus won five consecutive football championships becoming the most loved football team in Italy. The Italian press described Juventus in two ways: on the one hand with admiration for their efficiency and on the other in a polemical way for their game considered too unspectacular. The following essay analyzes the journalistic narrative of this period underlining the cultural connections of these readings. In fact, it was a very important moment for Italian football which became increasingly popular between the end of the 1920s and the beginning of the 1930s. In this period, the fascist institutions devoted ever greater attention to football and organized the World Cup which took place in Italy in 1934.</p> 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Onofrio Bellifemine Correre in camicia nera. La fascistizzazione del ciclismo 2023-03-21T10:35:52+00:00 Alberto Molinari <p>This contribution aims to illustrate the ideologic, propaganda and sports political directions and motivations that led the Commands of the Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale to strongly support the cycling activity of the soldiers at first, and to drastically reduce it shortly later, following the redefinition of the regime’s sporting arrangements caused by the “Carta dello sport”. In addition to outlining the strictly sporting aspects of MVSN’s activity in the cycling field, this contribution intends to provide some insights that can enrich the overall interpretation of the regime’s relationship with cycling. The analysis of the MVSN’s case allows us to highlight some dynamics of the fascistization of the cycling world, the role played by sport as a way for party officials to obtain visibility, distinction and political credit, and the meaning that the sporting dimension took on in the organizational structure and in the development of the Milizia’s fascist ideology.</p> 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Alberto Molinari Un'opera dimenticata 2023-03-23T08:45:57+00:00 Erminio Fonzo <p>The three volumes of Storia degli sport edited by Andrea Franzoni constitute the first attempt in Italy to produce a general study on the history of athletics. The work was published in the midst of the Fascist dictatorship and could not fail to be influenced by the political context, so much so that many of its parts are characterised by a nationalistic approach and a desire to highlight the successes, real or presumed, of the regime's sports policy. However, being aimed at a more restricted audience than other publications, the Storia dello sport does not merely repeat the most common theses that appeared in the newspapers, but also proposes more realistic and well-founded considerations. Today, the work is all but forgotten, but it can be a very useful source for those studying sport during the Fascist period, as it provides a clear understanding of the ideas on athleticism that circulated in the regime</p> 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Erminio Fonzo Un anno di storia dello sport 2023-03-23T10:37:19+00:00 Tommaso Begotti 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tommaso Begotti Storia e storiografia dello sport durante il fascismo 2023-03-21T09:15:22+00:00 Erminio Fonzo Enrico Landoni 2023-03-27T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Erminio Fonzo, Enrico Landoni
