War in Pavia
faccio sedere i ragazzi in cerchio, faccio ascoltare Troy sound track ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-l2JlM9WPU ) che simula colpi di cannoni e rende bene l'idea dei rumori durante la guerra.
Poi chiedo loro se quel rumore ho provocato danni. NO! niente danni, nè alle finestre, nè ai tetti e tanto meno alle loro orecchie, mentre l'onda d'urto dei bombardamenti a Pavia ha distrutto i tetti delle case del vecchio borgo.
Fascism: Italy was a totalitarian State. Fascism was totalitarian because it took part in almost every social life aspects: economy, conflicts between workers and trader, education and assistance, even freetime and leisure. Fascism wanted to establish unity between State, party and society, to avoid any opposition.
To send messages to the population they used wonderful instruments: radio, cinema and newspapers.These became propaganda instruments for the regime and were useful to escape dissent.

look at the photo of the ponte coperto blown up on September 1944
that day a young lady with her little child had just crossed the bridge when a bomb fell from the sky. The boy was only six years old.
The bomb blew the bridge up and some splinters of the bricks hit the boy’s chest. He died soon after in her mother’s arms.
