Four historians of different ages, backgrounds and fields of study reflect on the extraordinary importance of Angelo Del Boca, a pioneer and in many ways the founder of studies on Italian colonial Africa. Ever keen to unearth and use the most diverse documentary sources, Del Boca - a very prolific scholar whose work was loved by a wide audience - successfully removed deeply rooted mythologies and underestimations, leading to a reading of events, ideologies and long-term colonial mentality, which highlighted the links between the Liberal and the Fascist period, as well as the fallout and enduring nature of the colonial experience in Republican Italy.
