The historical problem of Italian terrorism has recently been brought back at the centre of the historical debate: a new wave of research has been carried out by a new generation of young scholars who have not directly experienced those years. We addressed them a few questions, focused on: the methodological aspects of the comparison, especially between the Italian and the German case; the relationship between the so-called «Black Terrorism», oriented by neofascist groups in the first half of the 1970s, and the second wave of terrorism led by insurgent groups of Marxist and revolutionary tendencies; the possibility to acquire new sources, in order to open new fields of research and gauge new interpretations; and finally, what they consider to be the main causes of the end of Italian terrorism. Our questions have been answered by Giovanni Mario Ceci, Guido Panvini, Luca Falciola and Monica Galfré.
