About the Author

Alessio Ponzio received his PhD in history and politics from the Universita Roma Tre and is now pursuing a second degree at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in women's studies and history. He has held fellowships at the Newhouse Center for the Humanities at Wellesley College and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.


"A rich treatment of Fascist and Nazi youth training and institutions, grounded in meticulous archival research. Ponzio also assumes no prior knowledge of either regime's history, making this an excellent choice for both undergraduate and graduate reading lists." --Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth "Ponzio provides, above all, valuable new perspectives on the tremendous influence of Italian Fascism on fledgling Nazi youth organizations, and the cooperative and reciprocal relationships that flourished between the two regimes."--Michael Ebner, author of Ordinary Violence in Mussolini's Italy "A valuable and original contribution to the historiography of the totalitarian project in Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. Alessio Ponzio should especially be commended for his transnational focus and for the rigor with which he traces the interactions, influences, and tensions between the youth organizations of the two regimes."--Joshua Arthurs, author of Excavating Modernity: The Roman Past in Fascist Italy "Mussolini and Hitler agreed that the future of their movements depended on molding young people by indoctrinating them in body, mind and spirit. . . . Ponzio explores the elaborate programs of radical transformation established by the Italian Fascists and emulated by the Nazi Germans. Holding power was only the means to an end for Mussolini and Hitler, who had grand designs of remodeling their nations and (at least for Hitler) remaking the world."--Shepherd Express
