Abstract

As the First Italo-Ethiopian War commences, Professor Perboni promotes an Italian nationalism that excludes colonization of African states. He argues that Italy must concentrate on improving the nation after the Risorgimento, prompting his suspension. Such anti-colonial ideas vanish, however, when he is drafted to fight shortly before the Battle of Adewo, which ended Italy's campaign to take Ethiopia.
