Enzo Collotti was the most important Italian Germanist historian of the post-World War II period. He became interested in German history not through his academic studies, but through his experience as a teenager living in a pivotal and crossroads city like Trieste, where he spent the years 1940-1945, and his fascination for the forms of socialism - particularly Austromarxism - not linked to communist or social democratic orthodoxy. As a result, one of Collotti’s main interests, to which he devoted decades of research, was the understanding of the contradiction between the presence in the German-speaking area of a cultural sphere of the highest level, and the dramatic manifestation of the most radical and destructive form of fascism between 1933 and 1945.
