FDV Bruno Trentin was established in 2007 after the death of Bruno Trentin on 23 August. In these eight years it has organised various conferences on his political and trade union activities, aimed at illustrating the thoughts and personality of Bruno Trentin.
Conferences have been held in Treviso, Rome, Milan Genoa, Bologna and, at European level, in Brussels and Paris. The proceedings of these conferences have been published by Ediesse. A film was also made “Con la furia di un ragazzo” (With the fury of a boy), directed by Franco Gilardi. The latest books published, again by Ediesse, include “La sinistra di Bruno Trentin, elementi per una biografia” by Iginio Ariemma and “L'itinerario di B.Trentin” by Ilaria Romeo and Sante Cruciani, which makes use of print and multimedia documentation and the existing bibliography in the CGIL archives.
A transcript is being made of Bruno’s 20 handwritten notebooks, which will be published 10 years after his death. A new edition of “La città del lavoro” has been published by Florence University Press and a study of the book by university and trade union researchers will soon be published.
FDV Bruno Trentin participates in and promotes local initiatives of various kinds, such as debates and the naming of offices and streets dedicated to Bruno Trentin.
