Marco Reglia, author of the book Mascolinità devianti: dall’ex Litorale austriaco all’ex Venezia Giulia (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2020, “Deviant Masculinities: from the former Austrian coast to the former Venezia Giulia”) will be there to further explore the issues addressed in his work. In particular, he will discuss the role of masculinity and its deviance within the territory of the former Venezia Giulia and the penal approach adopted by the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the subsequent fascism along the border.
A fascinating overview drawn from unpublished documents from the archives of the former Italian provinces – now in Croatian and Slovenian territory – supported by oral sources which leads us to reflect on the condition of gay people in the past, in the present and in the future.
