“Scenografie coloniali. FIAT 633NM” is the book that documents the exhibition created by the Museo Diffuso della Resistenza, della Deportazione, della Guerra, dei Diritti e della Libertà of Turin, curated by Enrico Manera, Roberto Mastroianni, Chiara Miranda and stages a reflection on the historical experience of Italian colonialism in Italian East Africa (AOI), proposing a path that combines historiographical, anthropological, cultural and didactic in-depth study in relation to the audio-video installation by Eleonora Roaro, entitled FIAT 633NM.
The book is an exercise in decolonization of our gaze and imagination and of racist and colonialist propaganda through the problematization and deconstruction of the figure of the European colonizer, investigating the imaginary mechanisms of the construction of the colonial landscape and the imaginary invention of Africa made through the fascist propaganda of the time. The colonial gaze and imaginary are questioned starting from a work of art that interacts with a theoretical historical reconstruction, the result of the research work of the Museo Diffuso and of the partner institutions of the Polo del ‘900.
