• Large families: housing and poverty in Fascist Rome

    July 15, 2017

    The UAS (Ufficio Assistenza Sociale — “Social Assistance Office”) of the Governatorate of Rome is increasingly proving to be a real gold mine of historical sources documenting the living conditions of the population of Rome in the interwar years. 


    The HHB team is working on a new source, which collects applications of 100 families for a social housing program, specifically targeted for large families. The source not only provides detailed information about the economic and health condition of the family members, but also rich photographic evidence.

Work in progress Coming Soon
