Dangerous Characters film screening and director Q&A


Associazione Nazionale Partigiani d’Italia and Clapton CFC present a screening of Alfio Bernabei’s award-winning Channel 4 documentary Dangerous Characters on the anti-fascists who opposed Mussolini within the Italian community in the United Kingdom.

In 1922, the fascists rose to power in Italy. In Britain, only a handful raised the alarm, while most of the Italian community stood aside or actively organised to support his regime.

‘Dangerous Characters’ by Alfio Bernabei tells the story of those who never bowed to Fascism, but also the history of how the Italians in London reacted to the regime.

Includes a Q&A with the director Bernabei, who is also author of a 2022 book The Summer Before Tomorrow on the little known opposition of Welsh dock workers to the arrival of ship full of Italian fascists.

Free entry. Book your space on Eventbrite and share the Facebook event.
