dr. Matteo Perissinotto
In April 2016 I obtained the PhD in History at the University of Trieste, defending a dissertation entitled Italian Jews facing the Great War (1914-1919). From 2013 to 2016 I have been involved in the project Der Erste Weltkrieg und die Konflikte der europäischen Nachkriegsordnung (1914-1923) at the Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung (ZfA) in Berlin.
I’m the Managing Editor of the Review “Quest. Issues in Contemporary Jewish History. Journal of CDEC Foundation” (http://www.quest-cdecjournal.it/index.php). I’m also scientific collaborator of the Jewish Community Museum in Trieste “Carlo e Vera Wagner” and “Fondazione Museo della Shoah” in Rome.
I participated as a speaker in several international conferences regarding Italian Jews and WWI and about philanthropy, associations and honours in the documents of Italian Consulate archive in Trieste (1861-1915).
