Il Risorgimento nazionale tra epica e cronaca

Attorno al 1860, con la creazione del regno d’Italia sotto la monarchia dei Savoia, in pittura e in scultura si diffonde un nuovo repertorio di soggetti ispirati alle guerre di Indipendenza e alla loro ripercussione nella vita quotidiana. Le scene di guerra vengono rievocate in grandi composizioni, alcune di tono dichiaratamente celebrativo, spesso destinate alle rassegne d’arte. Inoltre risultano assai numerosi dipinti e sculture in cui gli artisti elaborano scene di genere, cioè attinenti a una quotidianità osservata con estrema attenzione nei confronti degli aspetti narrativi, spesso con finalità educative o moralistiche. Protagonista di tali composizioni è il mondo degli affetti familiari: la partenza di un soldato volontario per il fronte, l’arrivo ai familiari rimasti a casa di una lettera inviata dal campo, l’emulazione delle gesta eroiche da parte dei bambini, l’attesa, la trepidazione, il rimpianto e la nostalgia come sentimenti più spesso manifestati dai personaggi attraverso l’espressione del viso e la gestualità.

COMMENTO AUDIO

Was born in Fiume on November 4, 1913. He was the son of the city’s Chief Rabbi, David, and of Matilde Miriam Gellis, of Hungarian origin, and he had seven siblings.
During his national service, Arminio was assigned to the Roman base of the Air Ministry. He stayed on in the capital, working as an office clerk and as an interpreter. In 1937, he married Regina Polacco and the following year their daughter Clara was born, who was soon afflicted with Polio.
On October 16, he was arrested at his home in number 6, Lungotevere Ripa, with his wife (aged 31), daughter (5), his in-laws Moise Polacco (68) and Carlotta Cesana (67), and with Vittorio, a 2-year-old boy, son of his brother-in-law who was out of Rome. In the post-arrest chaos, Arminio managed to throw young Vittorio out of the truck and into the arms of the building’s porter, thus saving the young boy’s life.
At the Military College, Theodor Dannecker, who was in charge of the round up, used him as an interpreter. Once Arminio arrived at the camps, he was also given a similar role by doctor Josef Mengele on the Judenrampe at Birkenau, a job he performed until the liberation. His wife and daughter were killed straight after the selection process.
Arminio was registered with number 158639 then transferred to Warsaw to the camp built on the ruins of the ghetto. In July 1944, when this camp was cleared, he was sent within the Reich to Dachau and some of its sub-camps, where he was liberated in April 1945.
At that point, Arminio decided to stay in Germany to fulfil the role of administration manager at a camp for Displaced Persons, at Feldafing, a small village south of Munich. Here he met and married Olga Wiener, an Hungarian survivor of Auschwitz. In 1946, in Munich, he became father to a baby girl, who was named Clara, after his first daughter murdered by the Nazis. He returned to Italy in 1949, settling in Milan, where he once again worked for Ammonia, the chemical company that had courageously hired him after the armistice was announced on September 8, 1943. Another daughter, Silvia, was born in 1954.
He died in Milan on April 24, 2002, at the age of 89.

In the post-arrest chaos, Arminio managed to throw young Vittorio out of the truck and into the arms of the building’s porter, thus saving the young boy’s life.
At the Military College, Theodor Dannecker, who was in charge of the round up, used him as an interpreter. Once Arminio arrived at the camps, he was also given a similar role by doctor Josef Mengele on the Judenrampe at Birkenau, a job he performed until the liberation. His wife and daughter were killed straight after the selection process.
Arminio was registered with number 158639 then transferred to Warsaw to the camp built on the ruins of the ghetto. In July 1944, when this camp was cleared, he was sent within the Reich to Dachau and some of its sub-camps, where he was liberated in April 1945.
At that point, Arminio decided to stay in Germany to fulfil the role of administration manager at a camp for Displaced Persons, at Feldafing, a small village south of Munich. Here he met and married Olga Wiener, an Hungarian survivor of Auschwitz. In 1946, in Munich, he became father to a baby girl, who was named Clara, after his first daughter murdered by the Nazis. He returned to Italy in 1949, settling in Milan, where he once again worked for Ammonia, the chemical company that had courageously hired him after the armistice was announced on September 8, 1943. Another daughter, Silvia, was born in 1954.
He died in Milan on April 24, 2002, at the age of 89.

Was born in Fiume on November 4, 1913. He was the son of the city’s Chief Rabbi, David, and of Matilde Miriam Gellis, of Hungarian origin, and he had seven siblings.

Was born in Fiume on November 4, 1913. He was the son of the city’s Chief Rabbi, David, and of Matilde Miriam Gellis, of Hungarian origin, and he had seven siblings.
During his national service, Arminio was assigned to the Roman base of the Air Ministry. He stayed on in the capital, working as an office clerk and as an interpreter. In 1937, he married Regina Polacco and the following year their daughter Clara was born, who was soon afflicted with Polio.
On October 16, he was arrested at his home in number 6, Lungotevere Ripa, with his wife (aged 31), daughter (5), his in-laws Moise Polacco (68) and Carlotta Cesana (67), and with Vittorio, a 2-year-old boy, son of his brother-in-law who was out of Rome. In the post-arrest chaos, Arminio managed to throw young Vittorio out of the truck and into the arms of the building’s porter, thus saving the young boy’s life.
At the Military College, Theodor Dannecker, who was in charge of the round up, used him as an interpreter. Once Arminio arrived at the camps, he was also given a similar role by doctor Josef Mengele on the Judenrampe at Birkenau, a job he performed until the liberation. His wife and daughter were killed straight after the selection process.
Arminio was registered with number 158639 then transferred to Warsaw to the camp built on the ruins of the ghetto. In July 1944, when this camp was cleared, he was sent within the Reich to Dachau and some of its sub-camps, where he was liberated in April 1945.
At that point, Arminio decided to stay in Germany to fulfil the role of administration manager at a camp for Displaced Persons, at Feldafing, a small village south of Munich. Here he met and married Olga Wiener, an Hungarian survivor of Auschwitz. In 1946, in Munich, he became father to a baby girl, who was named Clara, after his first daughter murdered by the Nazis. He returned to Italy in 1949, settling in Milan, where he once again worked for Ammonia, the chemical company that had courageously hired him after the armistice was announced on September 8, 1943. Another daughter, Silvia, was born in 1954.
He died in Milan on April 24, 2002, at the age of 89.

COMMENTO AUDIO

Was born in Fiume on November 4, 1913. He was the son of the city’s Chief Rabbi, David, and of Matilde Miriam Gellis, of Hungarian origin, and he had seven siblings.
During his national service, Arminio was assigned to the Roman base of the Air Ministry. He stayed on in the capital, working as an office clerk and as an interpreter. In 1937, he married Regina Polacco and the following year their daughter Clara was born, who was soon afflicted with Polio.
On October 16, he was arrested at his home in number 6, Lungotevere Ripa, with his wife (aged 31), daughter (5), his in-laws Moise Polacco (68) and Carlotta Cesana (67), and with Vittorio, a 2-year-old boy, son of his brother-in-law who was out of Rome. In the post-arrest chaos, Arminio managed to throw young Vittorio out of the truck and into the arms of the building’s porter, thus saving the young boy’s life.
At the Military College, Theodor Dannecker, who was in charge of the round up, used him as an interpreter. Once Arminio arrived at the camps, he was also given a similar role by doctor Josef Mengele on the Judenrampe at Birkenau, a job he performed until the liberation. His wife and daughter were killed straight after the selection process.
Arminio was registered with number 158639 then transferred to Warsaw to the camp built on the ruins of the ghetto. In July 1944, when this camp was cleared, he was sent within the Reich to Dachau and some of its sub-camps, where he was liberated in April 1945.
At that point, Arminio decided to stay in Germany to fulfil the role of administration manager at a camp for Displaced Persons, at Feldafing, a small village south of Munich. Here he met and married Olga Wiener, an Hungarian survivor of Auschwitz. In 1946, in Munich, he became father to a baby girl, who was named Clara, after his first daughter murdered by the Nazis. He returned to Italy in 1949, settling in Milan, where he once again worked for Ammonia, the chemical company that had courageously hired him after the armistice was announced on September 8, 1943.

Settimia Spizzichino

Nasce il 15 aprile del 1921 ed è la quarta di sei figli. In un primo tempo la famiglia vive a Tivoli dove il padre, Marco Mosè Spizzichino, è commerciante. Dopo la promulgazione delle leggi antiebraiche, persa la licenza del negozio, la famiglia decide di trasferirsi a Roma, presso le figlie Ada e Gentile ormai sposate.
Il 16 ottobre i nazisti irrompono nell’appartamento di via della Reginella 2, dove gli Spizzichino risiedono. Con la prontezza che la contraddistingue, Settimia riesce a salvare la sorella Gentile e i suoi tre figli dichiarandoli non ebrei. Lei viene però deportata con la madre Grazia Di Segni, le sorelle Giuditta e Ada, la nipotina Rosanna di solo 18 mesi.
All’arrivo a Birkenau solo Settimia e Giuditta superano la selezione, mentre le altre vengono mandate alle camere a gas. Giuditta, purtroppo, non sopravvive al lavoro schiavo.
Settimia, immatricolata con il numero 66210, viene successivamente trasferita ad Auschwitz I per essere sottoposta a una terribile sperimentazione medica a cui miracolosamente sopravvive. Nel gennaio del 1945 deve affrontare anche la “marcia della morte” verso il campo di Bergen-Belsen, dove rimane fino all’arrivo degli inglesi. L’11 settembre rientra finalmente a Roma.
Settimia è una delle prime persone sopravvissute ad Auschwitz a testimoniare il dramma della Shoah, impegno che avrebbe onorato per tutta la vita.
Nel 1996 esce il suo libro: Gli anni rubati. Muore il 3 luglio 2000 a Roma.

Dante Almansi sul suo colloquio con Herbert Kappler, in Silvia Haia Antonucci, Claudio Procaccia, Gabriele Rigano, Giancarlo Spizzichino, Roma, 16 ottobre 1943. Anatomia di una deportazione, Milano, Guerini e associati, 2006.

“Voi e i vostri correligionari avete la cittadinanza italiana, ma di ciò a me importa poco. Noi tedeschi vi consideriamo unicamente ebrei e come tali nostri nemici. Anzi, per essere più chiari, noi vi consideriamo come un gruppo distaccato, ma non isolato dei peggiori fra i nemici contro i quali stiamo combattendo. E come tali dobbiamo trattarvi. Però non sono le vostre vite né i vostri figli che vi prenderemo se adempirete alle nostre richieste. È il vostro oro che vogliamo per dare nuove armi al nostro paese. Entro 36 ore dovete versarmene 50 Kg. Se lo verserete non vi sarà fatto del male. In caso diverso, 200 fra voi verranno presi e deportati in Germania alla frontiera russa o altrimenti resi innocui.”

Da G. Debenedetti, 16 ottobre 1943, Torino, Einaudi, 2001.

“Effettivamente, la sera del 26 settembre 1943, il presidente della Comunità Israelitica di Roma e quello dell’Unione delle Comunità Italiane – tramite il dott. Cappa, funzionario della Questura – erano stati convocati per le ore 18 all’Ambasciata Germanica. Li ricevette, paurosamente cortese e «distinto», il Maggiore delle SS Herbert Kappler, che li fece accomodare e per qualche momento parlò del più e del meno in tono di ordinaria conversazione. Poi entrò nel merito: gli ebrei di Roma erano doppiamente colpevoli, come italiani […] per il tradimento contro la Germania, e come ebrei perché appartenenti alla razza degli eterni nemici della Germania. Perciò il governo del Reich imponeva loro una taglia di 50 chilogrammi d’oro, da versarsi entro le ore 11 del successivo martedì 28. In caso di inadempienza, razzia e deportazione in Germania di 200 ebrei. Praticamente: poco più di un giorno e mezzo per trovare 50 chili d’oro.”
