The present paper aims to analyze the celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the Liberation. My goal is to show how the aforementioned celebrations did actually dismiss a topic that was central for the Italian identity since the very beginning of the Italian Republic. I am going to investigate this issue by both drawing a historical comparison between the 2015 celebrations and the public use of fascism-antifascism topic since mid-1970s, and conducting a content and rhetorical analysis of the public discourse during 2015 commemorations.
