This essay deals with the topic of political confinement in Italy during the fascist regime from a new viewpoint, that is through the stories and testimonies of relatives of the anti-fascist internees. If scanty remains scholarly production on the direct experience of fascist confinement, nothing short of nonexistent is the investigation on the indirect experience lived by thousands of people, mostly women, who bore from outside the condition and consequences of political internment, in personal but also social and economic terms (finding themselves very often isolated from their community and generally deprived of the sole source of income in their family). From the interview we learn how Giovanna Marturano - a lifelong politically committed and by now centenarian daughter of a confined woman, fiancee and later wife of Pietro Grifone, he also confined in Ventotene - experienced the persecution and violence, also physical, Fascism inflicted on her by the political confinement of her dear ones.
Keywords: Political confinement, interned women, Giovanna Marturano, Fascism, anti- Fascism, Ventotene
