The article proposes some reflections on the work of the historian in the face of extensive memory on the so-called "years of lead" and the commemorations of the State, particularly on the "Day of memory for the victims of terrorism and massacres". Celebrations established by law and the many individual stories that nourish the collective memory, recall tragic moments in the history of the Republic but are unable to provide an authentic historical knowledge free of prejudices and stereotypes that characterize the current political language. The historian is called upon to perform the difficult work of interpretation and analysis of the sources and its role assumes an important meaning civil action against any manipulation and deception in the history of those years.
Keywords: Years of Lead, collective memory, memorials laws, political use of memory, sources, courts, truth
